Columbia: IIJS presents ‘One Week and a Day’
April 26, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
Join the IIJS for a screening of “One Week and A Day” a new Israeli tragicomedy.
As Eyal finishes the traditional Jewish week of mourning for his late son, his wife Vicky urges him to return to their routine — but just because the shiva has ended doesn’t mean it’s life as usual. Each coping in their own way, Eyal and Vicky both attempt to regain a sense of control over their future, as they struggle to discover that there are still things in life worth living for. Asaph Polonsky’s debut feature “One Week and A Day” provides a nuanced perspective on loss that is humorous, touching, and above all else, life affirming. (98 min)
