Jewish Film Festival

November 6, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

THE OTHER WIDOW

Nominated for 9 Ophir awards (Israeli Oscars) including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actress, this is a darkly comedic drama about Ella (Dana IvgyCinema Sabaya), a costume designer/theater dresser involved in a long-term relationship with Assaf, a respected but married playwright. When Assaf dies unexpectedly, she is the last to hear about it. Her co-workers know that she was Assaf’s mistress, but no one thought she would dare to show up at his house alongside the other mourners during the Shiva (seven days of mourning according to Jewish tradition). Keeping her identity under wraps, Ella dives into a world once forbidden to her. Through intimate encounters with his brother, parents, and, most especially, his wife (Ania BuksteinThe SecretsCFJFF 2008), she examines her place in his life and eventually demands her legitimate right to mourn.
