Washington Jewish Film Festival Spring Film: Fill the Void
With her first dramatic feature, writer-director Rama Burshtein offers us an unprecedented window into a young woman’s life in Tel Aviv's ultra-orthodox Hasidic community. Strict social codes, rabbinical decrees, and subtle signifiers govern the way all members interact—especially men and women. This is the universe of taciturn, 18-year-old Shira, whose cloistered life takes a dramatic turn when her sister suddenly dies, leaving behind a newborn and a bereaved husband.
