Description

We are delighted to close this year’s Festival with Avi Nesher’s drama Past Life after having already screened his movies—The Secrets, The Wonders, The Matchmaker and Rage and Glory. His newest feature film explores the meaning of memory and forgiveness; it was purposefully set in 1977, the year that Anwar Sadat made his historic trip to Jerusalem. Past Life captures the tensions generated between two adult daughters and their father after the young women begin to look into his past. This masterfully crafted drama boasts sterling performances and a gripping musical score.

Co-sponsor: Temple Isaiah.

Underwritten by Lehrhaus Judaica; Mechanics Bank; Judy and Marty Aufhauser.
