An urban legend about a mermaid sighting in the coastal town of Kiryat Yam is the premise for Keren Ben Rafael’s first full-length feature that made its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival. Bored with small town life, teenaged Lana dreams of escaping to Tel Aviv. Hope arrives in the form of Tchipi (Michael Aloni, Shtisel) a handsome journalist who publishes her tall tale about a mermaid sighting in Ha’aretz, generating a media frenzy. An enchanting coming of age tale, Virgins reminds us that even as adults, we should maintain a sense of wonder and belief.
