Best Israeli First Feature, Jerusalem Film Festival 2021. Orit Fouks Rotem’s groundbreaking debut has attracted much deserved critical acclaim and multiple awards. A group of Arab and Jewish women attend a workshop run by Rona, a young filmmaker from Tel Aviv, to learn to document their lives on video. As each woman shares her raw footage with the others, they are all forced to challenge their preconceived views and beliefs, coming together as mothers, wives, and women, and forming an empowering and lasting bond. Cinema Sabaya presents a deft and heartfelt portrait of art’s capacity to unite disparate communities.

This film is part of the Jewish Film Festival 2022 series.
