Winter Film Series: FILL THE VOID

Co-sponsored with the Baltimore Jewish Film Festival

This award-winning Israeli drama is the first film directed by an Orthodox Israeli woman. In her remarkable debut feature film, Rama Burshtein tells the story of Shira, a young woman living in an ultra-Orthodox enclave in Tel Aviv who confronts a choice not unlike those faced by heroines of Jane Austen novels and Hollywood romantic comedies: which man will she marry? For Shira, this agonizing question forces her to weigh the claims of family loyalty, religious duty and her own desires. This film is thrilling, completely unexpected and entirely believable. Hebrew with English subtitles. Listening devices available upon request. VIEW PREVIEW:
