The Women’s Balcony

Womens-Balcony-16x9

Dir. Emil Ben Shimon, Israel, 2016, 96 min, Hebrew w/ English subtitles | An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a gender rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates an almost Lysistrata-type rift between the community’s women and men. Already a hit on the festival circuit, The Women’s Balcony is a rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power.

WinterFest is the signature year-round program of the Jewish Film Institute – presenters of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival – featuring the best in new Jewish film and media for diverse Bay Area audiences. The 2017 WinterFest edition will be held on the weekend of March 4–5, 2017 in San Francisco.
