Films from Is­rael

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

SERET IN­TER­NA­TIONAL 2017, the Is­raeli Film & TV Fes­ti­val, takes place be­tween 11 -18 May in venues across Lon­don and Manch­ester. The films of­fer “their own ex­pres­sion of the so­cial and po­lit­i­cal mul­ti­plic­ity that the Mid­dle East’s lead­ing democ­racy rep­re­sents”, says Seret’s co-founders, Odelia Haroush, Anat Koren and Patti Hochmann.

Women dom­i­nate this year’s dy­namic and thought-pro­vok­ing pro­gramme, both be­hind the camera and in strong lead roles in­clud­ing UK pre­mieres The Women’s Bal­cony, Be­tween Worlds and Di­mona Twist.

As well as screen­ing new films, many of which have been win­ners on the na­tional and in­ter­na­tional film fes­ti­val cir­cuit, it is an op­por­tu­nity for au­di­ences to catch up with some of the best Is­raeli films made in the past few years, such as the multi-award­win­ning Sand Storm and Junc­tion 48. www.seretinter­na­tional. org
