Chicago Festival of Israeli Cinema
From Oct ’10 Spotlight:
Ruth (TV Drama): When “Ruth” (a religious teenager played by luminous Lucy Dubinchik from Saint Clara) first meets photojournalist “Erez” (Liron Livo) on the beach, she doesn’t realize he already knows her family story and has deliberately chosen her as the subject of his news piece. The unfolding drama vividly depicts the evacuation of Israel’s Gaza Strip settlements.
Awareness of what has happened in Gaza since 2005 drapes the film in additional sadness, yet whatever your political views, you can’t help but be touched by the human cost to all involved.
CFIC Screening #1: Mon Oct 25 @ 8:30 PM (Northbrook)
