Barren

February 11 @ 11:00 am

Playing in the CCA Cinema

Part of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival

Feigi and Naftali are a young childless Hasidic couple living with Naftali’s parents in Tzfat, Israel. When Naftali travels to Ukraine over Rosh Hashanah to pray for a child, a guest who claims to have healing powers is invited to stay with the family. Taking advantage of Feigi’s trust and desire for a child, he convinces her to undergo ‘barren treatment’, with sinister consequences.

When the difference between good and bad is unclear, the family must deal with a crisis that raises fundamental questions about religion and faith, in this graceful and compelling Israeli drama.
