Sunday 26 May

Film Afternoon: Ushpizin

Ushpzin (roughly translated to "holy guests") is a revelatory and humorous look at the daily lives of ultra-Orthodox Jews in modern-day Israel. Disarmingly funny, the film startles in its universality, depicting members of the community in scenes of ordinary living, drinking, smoking, dancing, arguing, reconciling and grappling with their faith.

Directed by Gidi Dar and written by Shuli Rand. The film is released by Picturehouse in 2005 in Hebrew, with English subtitles. Rated PG-13 (strong language and mild violence).
