A universal tale of star-crossed lovers is given a uniquely Mexican twist in this intimate portrait of Jewish family life. 25-year-old Ariela (beautifully played by Naian González Norvind) is a creative free spirit chafing against the constraints of her insular community. When she falls in love with a non-Jewish man, her place within her family and the Jewish community is called into question. While religion is the catalyst for the dramatic tension, what distinguishes this film is the way director Isaac Cherem, along with co-writer and star Gonzalez Norvind, portrays Ariela’s journey toward becoming her own woman.
ASL Interpreter will be present at May 9 screening for introduction and post-film Q & A.
