Film Series: Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem (2014)
17th April - 7:00pm for 7:15pm Freedom
Gett is a contemporary exploration of divorce and long-term relationships occasionally broken by lighter moments. It is also a rare insight into the rabbinical court and its treatment of women. Viviane is refused a gett; a Jewish divorce which can only be given by a court of rabbinical judges and with the consent of her husband. The exhausting and absurd hurdles Viviane is forced to endure, and the anguish caused by not being able to start a new life, do not stop her.
Winner of Best Film at the Jerusalem Film Festival, 2014, winner of the best film Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars) and screened in Directors' fortnight in Cannes 2014 to critical acclaim, this is a riveting watch.
