The ninth annual Israel Film Center Festival will be taking place from June 15-29; tickets are now on sale for the featured films which will be available to enjoy virtually.
Here are a few select features in this year’s lineup:
Kiss Me Kosher
A subversive love story about clashing cultures and families, Kiss Me Kosher is a romantic misadventure crossing all borders. When two generations of Israeli women fall for a German woman and a Palestinian man, chaos follows. What happens when lovers don’t fit together but do belong together?
From the breakthrough director of Zero Motivation comes Honeymood, a romantic comedy set over the course of one night in Jerusalem. A bride and groom arrive at a lavish hotel suite after their wedding. What should have been a romantic night together turns into a fight that develops into a dazed urban journey, making them confront past loves, repressed doubts, and the lives they have left behind.
Here We Are
Living together in a gentle routine, Aharon is devoted to raising his autistic son, Uri, away from interaction with the outside world. But as Uri becomes a young adult, they realize it’s time for him to live in a supervised home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son to avoid the separation. But which one of them is the one afraid to let go?
