SERET: Laces + Q&A

Cinema

Directed by Jacob Goldwasser | 2019 | Israel | Drama| Hebrew with English subtitles| 1h 38m | Starring Yafit Asulin, Evalin Hagoel, Doval’e Glickman, Nevo Kimchi

On the death of his mother, Gadi, who has special needs, has to move in with the father who abandoned him when he was a young child. Convinced he has no room in his life for this responsibility, Reuben, performed with a gruff charm by Doval’e Glickman, grudgingly learns to love and respect his 38-year-old son, played by Nevo Kimchi in a sensitive, multi-faceted performance.

When Gadi finds out that his father’s kidneys are failing, he is blocked by a transplant committee which doesn’t believe he has the capacity to make the decision to donate one of his own kidneys.  He sets out to fight for his right to save his father’s life.

The director Joseph Goldwasser has a son with special needs, and the film raises challenging questions about our attitudes to disability.
