Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival: The Farewell Party
“The Farewell Party” is an unusual dark comedy about a group of friends at a retirement home who build a machine for self-euthanasia in order to help their terminally ill friend. When rumors of the machine begin to spread, more and more people ask for their help, and the friends are faced with a life and death dilemma.
Premiering this past year at the Venice International Film Festival, “The Farewell Party” won the People's Choice Award with a 97% positive vote and a cast that is a Who’s Who of top Israeli actors. It garnered 14 nominations for Israeli Academy Awards, snagging four wins including Best Actor. The screening is a special preview! The film will go into theatrical release later this year.
