"The Unorthodox" — NEW YORK PREMIERE

Eliran Malka’s directing debut is a dramatic underdog story filled with comedic relief. This close-to-reality account of the founding of Shas, the Sephardi Haredi political party, has been an audience favorite everywhere it goes. The film exposes the injustice and discrimination that Shas sought to challenge, its first successes in the early 1980s and its achievement in winning 17 of the 120 Knesset seats in 1999, followed by the in-fighting and corruption behind the scenes. Fun, funny and poignant & not to be missed.

Presented as Festival Centerpiece. Followed by Q&A with director Eliran Malka (b. 1980).
