Working Woman

“Finely drawn characters and the kind of gray-area scenario that may be uncomfortably familiar to many women make this a thought-provoking addition to the post #metoo conversation.” (Screen International)

Set in present-day Jerusalem, Michal Aviad’s (Dimona Twist) mesmerizing new film focuses on Orna (the talented Liron Ben Shlush), mother and caregiver to three young children, who returns to the workplace to help support the family as her husband struggles to start a restaurant. She lands a job with a former army superior, Benny (Menashe Noy, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem), now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces and excels in her new position, balancing the work demands with her home life, Benny begins a campaign of sexual harassment. Orna’s rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel his predatory behavior and ultimately bring her career and marital relationship to the brink. This timely, devastating story is expertly told by longtime feminist filmmaker Michal Aviad.

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