SFJFF presents A News Lens on Israel: The Fifth Heaven
Israel, 2011 | Directed by Dina Zvi Riklis
In this sensitive coming-of-age drama set in British-controlled Palestine during World War II, a teenager struggles to adjust to life in an orphanage on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. Thirteen-year-old Maya must fight for her place among the other girls, and then falls in love with a 25-year-old resistance fighter who is engaged, all while attempting to piece together the puzzle of her life. The Fifth Heaven was nominated for five Israeli Academy Awards.
