MASSACHUSETTS PREMIERE. The radiant Moran Rosenblatt (Apples from the Dessert) won the Israeli Academy Award for her portrayal of Hagit, a dreamer who lives with her loving but protective mother Sarah (Assi Levy, Aviva My Love) in a desert town. Socially alienated by a childhood brain injury, Hagit finds escape in designing bridal gowns and miniature dolls out of leftover materials from the toilet paper factory where she works. When writer-director Nitzan Gilady (Jerusalem is Proud to Present NCJF’08) frames her against the stark amber-colored Negev desert, it is impossible not to feel Hagit’s formidable will. Winner of 2 Israeli Academy Awards (9 nominations). Winner Best Actress (Assi Levi) and Best Debut Israeli Feature Film at the Jerusalem Film Festival.
