The Other Story

“The latest work from the prolific Nesher underlines his track record of consistently creating engaging, thought-provoking reflections on modern life with broad commercial appeal.” (Screen International)

A poignant family drama set in Jerusalem that unfolds with the tension of a thriller. Two young women—one fleeing the chaos of secular materialism for the disciplined comforts of faith, the other eager to transcend her oppressive religious upbringing for spiritual and sexual freedom—unexpectedly cross paths, and the consequences are startling. With his latest film, acclaimed Israeli director Avi Nesher (Past Life) delves into an intricate web of desperate parents, rebellious children, and spouses locked in conflict. Nesher skillfully interweaves many threads while never losing track of the larger narrative. A masterful feat, and an enormous critical and commercial hit in Israel.

This film is part of the Westchester Jewish Film Festival 2019 series.
