Inspired by the improbable beginnings of Shas, the first political party in Israel to represent the disenfranchised Sephardic community, Eliran Malka’s feature debut is a quintessential underdog story, fueled equally by rage and humour. Angered when his daughter is expelled from school simply for being Sephardic, Ya’akov Cohen galvanizes his friends to take action. Armed with passion, they improvise a grassroots campaign to form a party dedicated to Mizrahi Jews. Their efforts would reshape Israeli society in ways that still resonate today. The film is carried by the outstanding performance of Shuli Rand (Ushpizin).
ASL Interpreter will be present at May 11 Screening for introduction and post-film Q & A.
