PJFF Closing Night: Women In Shorts

November 19, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

$25

For its closing night, the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival presents four short Israeli films made by and about women:

  • In Women in Sink, winner of multiple international film awards, director Iris Zaki chats about living in what she sees as a divided country with Arab and Jewish women getting their hair done at a small, neighborhood hair salon in the heart of Haifa.
  • In Operator, a single mom, who works as a drone operator, finds a parallel universe at home, with her son playing video games, similarly pressing buttons to determine one’s fate in a virtual world.
  • In The Fine Line, winner of the Special Mention Award at the 2015 Jerusalem Film Festival, a young aspiring actress must compromise her personal boundaries while filming a love scene.
  • Winner of Best Independent Short Film at the Haifa International Film Festival and the opening film at the International Student Film Festival in Tel Aviv, Hounds is a bizarrely comic allegory exploring a day in the life of an all female unit of security guards working in an Israeli contemporary art museum.

Guest Speakers: Iris Drechsler (moderator), PJFF artistic chair; Gil Sima, producer of “Hounds”; Omer Tobi, director of “Hounds”; and Iris Zaki, director of “Women in Sink”

Special Event: Film followed by closing night party with food, libations and music
