The Women’s Balcony

Israel|2016|Comedy/Drama|Hebrew with English subtitles|

Director: Emil Ben-Shim

When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi’s wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into

crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates an almost

Lysistrata-type rift between the community’s women and men in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power.
