‘Women’s Balcony’ – in NYC area and nation-wide.
Dir. Shlomit Nehama & Emil Ben-Shimon (Israel, 2016, 96 min, Narrative).

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 ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and leads to a gender rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem. Officially released in the US on May 26th.
Nominated for 5 Israeli Academy Awards.
