NH JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL: THE WOMEN’S BALCONY
(Not Rated 2017 96 min.)
An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a gender rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem, in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power.
When the women's balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi's wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women's friendships and creates an almost Lysistrata-type rift between the community's women and men.
Film followed by Dessert and Coffee Reception. Stay after the movie to mingle and discuss the film.
All tickets are $15 and includes a SOCIABLE SATURDAY NIGHT DESSERT RECEPTION
