WEDDING DOLL WITH SPECIAL GUEST: DIRECTOR NITZAN GILADY
May 15 @ 7:00 pm

Hagit, a young woman with a mild mental deficiency, works in a toilet-paper factory and lives with her mother, Sarah, a divorcée who gave up her life for her daughter. When Hagit embarks on her first romantic relationship, she keeps it a secret from her overbearing mom. Israeli director Nitzan Gilady sparkles in his feature debut, a richly detailed family drama for which Asi Levi’s performance as Sarah earned her the Best Actress prize at the 2015 Jerusalem Film Festival.

Humor Me
Jun 19 @ 7:00 pm

Humor Me was a sell-out at this year’s San Diego Jewish Film Festival and stars award-winning actors Elliot Gould, Bebe Neuwirth, Annie Potts, Jermaine Clement (from HBO’s Flight of the Conchords) and singer Ingrid Michaelson. A father and son comedy, the story centers on the son (Clement) who is forced to move into his father’s (Gould) retirement community. The film’s winsome performances and winking humor will remind audiences of writer/director Sam Hoffman’s acclaimed earlier work, Old Jews Telling Jokes.
