28th ANNUAL FILM FESTIVAL
October 27 - November 17, 2019

April 28, 2019: Screening of "The Unorthodox"

The Unorthodox

Co-Sponsored by

ICC @ JCC SVJFF



A Sephardic Jerusalem widower with no money or connections is incited to act when his daughter is expelled from a prestigious religious school just for her Sephardic ethnicity. Fueled by willpower and a raging sense of inequity, Yaakov Cohen and his friends unite to form the ultra-Orthodox Shas Party. A challenge to the ruling Ashkenazi establishment, their grassroots movement sets off one of the most surprising and transformative elections Israel has ever had. Based on actual events, this feature debut from Eliran Malka (director of TV's Shababnikim) is animated with suspense and humor, relating a tale of activism and dirty politics, which reshaped Israel and continues to reverberate today.
