Dir. Alon Zingman (Israel, 2013)
In Hebrew and Yiddish with English Subtitles
The new Israeli hit TV series Shtisel – from the producers of the beloved series Srugim – focuses on a Haredi family living in Jerusalem.
Join us for a big screen experience (plays in the Aaraon and Cecile Goldman Theater) and watch the whole of season one during Mondays in May.
Akiva and Shulem Shtisel, father and son, sit on a little balcony overlooking streets of the Geula neighborhood of Jerusalem. A year has passed since mother died. All the other children have left the nest, and only Shulam and Akiva remain - quarreling, making up, and laughing. All will change when Akiva meets Elisheva. Shtisel is a magical glimpse into an often closed-off world, overflowing with surprisingly poignant, if restrained, romanticism.
We will be showing 3 episodes each week.
