The Women's Balcony

 

Director: Emil Ben Shimon, Israel, 2016, 96 minutes


Hebrew with English subtitles, Purchase tickets at the door; $8.


When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox Jerusalem synagogue collapses during a bar mitzvah celebration, the close-knit Sephardic congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways. This severely tests the women’s friendships and divides the community along gender lines. A rousing tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power. A sensation in Israel, nominated for 5 Ophir Awards (Israeli Film Academy).
