Fill the Void

A devout 18-year-old Israeli is pressured to marry the husband of her late sister. Declaring her independence is not an option in Tel Aviv's ultra-Orthodox Hasidic community, where religious law, tradition and the rabbi's word are absolute.

    52 Weeks of Directors: Rama Burshtein

    It took Burshtein, a mother of four, 15 years to complete her first feature film outside of the Orthodox Jewish community. That film is Fill the Void, which received acclaim on the festival circuit in 2013.
