  • 25th BJFF– Stories from Israel

    Don't miss this extraordinary trio of Israeli films made by and about women.  And yes, there are some pretty talented men involved too!
    Aya - Aya, a sweet and adventurous Israeli woman, is mistaken for an assigned driver at the Tel Aviv airport, and, taking advantage of this random meeting, embarks on a road trip with a cultured visitor from Finland. They travel Israeli highways on an intriguing and flirtatious journey. How will their charmed day end? Nominated for an Ophir (Israeli Oscar) for Best Short Feature Film.
    Jerusalem ER -A hectic day at Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital ER is shown from the perspective of two female doctors, one Jewish, one Palestinian.
    Wherever You Go - Though cut off from her ultra-Orthodox Israeli family, Zohara decides to show up at her younger sister’s wedding. As fate would have it, she crosses paths along the way with Neriman, a Bedouin woman fleeing an arranged marriage. Zohara turns unintentional accomplice to Neriman’s escape, and Wherever You Go becomes a potent reflection, directed by a woman filmmaker, about the connections between women, no matter the religious background.
