This year, we said goodbye to one of Israel’s most beloved actresses, Ronit Elkabetz, who died at the age of 51. Elkabetz starred in many BJFF favorites including The Band’s Visit, Late Marriage, and most recently, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem. We pay tribute to Elkabetz’s life and work with To Take a Wife, the first film in the trilogy which ended with Gett. The film takes place in Haifa in 1979. Viviane is unhappily married to her controlling husband, Elisha. But despite her desire to break free, her traditional Moroccan brothers want her to devote herself to her household instead of to her own ideas about love and happiness.
Please join us in the Passholder Lounge at L’Aroma Café before and after the screening (11/13).+ More... - Less...
