Description

Based on the true story of theatre director and actress Pnina Gary, multi-award winning director Dan Wolman tells a passionate story of love and independence. Set in pre-state Palestine, Eli (Aviv Alush from The Women’s Balcony) and Margalit (Adi Bielski) are torn between their love for one another and where they see their own futures in the Jewish state. In the budding theatre world of Tel Aviv and the kibbutzim, Margalit finds her place in the spotlight. Eli, while planning to marry Margalit, is drawn deeper into the armed struggle for Jewish independence from the British.
ASL Interpreter will be present at May 11 screening for introduction and post- film Q & A
