In collaboration with the Prosserman JCC, this series showcases the excellence of Israeli cinema, fostering cultural connection.

In a dusty village on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, the late Morris Mandabon appears to his son in a dream and orders him to re-open their family’s now-boarded-up movie theatre, an act that revitalizes the community and reawakens old passions. An Israeli answer to Cinema Paradiso, this lovely and evocative film is also filled with a spirited soundtrack of Greek, Israeli and Indian music.
