New Israeli movies that will be coming to a theater near you – eventually
If and when movie theaters reopen – the proposed date has been pushed back to early July, and the details of the reopening plan are not clear – a whole slate of new Israeli films that have been sitting on the shelf will finally start to be released…. Two other Israeli films that were shown in competition in Tribeca were well-reviewed, Ruthy Pribar’s Asia and Eytan Fox’s Sublet. Asia tells the story of a complex relationship between a mother and a daughter of Russian descent, and how their unconventional bond leads them in unexpected directions. Its director, Pribar, became the second Israeli to win the Nora Ephron Award, and its star, Shira Haas, won the best actress award, and it also won for best cinematography.
