The 100th anniversary of the founding of Tel Aviv has brought renewed attention to the city’s distinctive character. This installment of the Library’s popular film class will focus on three recent films set in Tel Aviv, and will consider how the city itself is presented. Come for a group viewing, incisive analyses, and spirited discussion. Taught by Library Director Howard Freedman.
The Jewish Film Class: Set in Tel Aviv
Jellyfish (Film 3)
Thursday, January 7, 7 pm Auditorium, Second Floor
Taught by Library Director Howard Freedman.
Co-directed by popular writers (and husband and wife) Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen, this unconventional film follows three very different Tel Aviv women: an aimless young waitress who finds an abandoned little girl at the beach; a bride who breaks her leg at her wedding reception; and a caregiver separated from her young son in the Philippines. As the woman struggle with difficult and unexpected situations, their occasionally intersecting stories weave a powerful portrait of modern Israeli life.
Israel, 2007. 78 minutes, in Hebrew with English subtitles. Video Projection
