    Hello, I’m writing to you from Spain.
    I would love to see Maya Sarfaty’s movie “Love it was not” but I don’t know how to do it. All the web pages I’ve been visiting are written in Hebrew and I don’t understand anything. How could I watch the documentary then?
    Thanks in advance,
    best regards!
