October 20, 2021: “Working Woman” (Israel, 2018) – 93 minutes

“Working Woman” is a drama about the everyday struggles of being female in the workplace. Orna is the mother of three young children whose husband is struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family, Orna lands a job with a former army superior who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna likes her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss.

Her rapid rise through the ranks and increasing financial success parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink. When her world is finally shattered, she must pull herself together to fight, in her own way, for her job and a sense of self-worth.


 

November 17, 2021: “Longing” (Israel, 2017) – 100 minutes

Successful single businessman Ariel Bloch is shocked to learn that a former girlfriend of his was pregnant when they separated two decades previously but kept quiet as she knew he didn’t want to be a parent. Now that their 19-year-old son has died in a car accident, she feels compelled to tell him.

Determined to find out more about his son, Ariel travels to Acre, where he meets those who knew him.  Each reveals a new and different side to the boy. Ariel persistently defends the memory of the son he never knew to anyone who dares throw even the slightest doubt over the boy’s character, carried away by a kind of love and devotion he never suspected of having in himself.

“Longing” was nominated for 12 Ophirs (Israeli Oscars) and won for Best Screenplay.
