Seret: Montana + Q&A

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Limor Shmila | 2017 | Israel | Hebrew and French with English subtitles | Starring Noa Biron, Avi Malka, Netta Shpigelman, Keren Tzur, Hava Ortman | 79 mins

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Limor Shmila.

A young woman returns to her hometown, Acre, following the death of her grandfather, and begins an affair with a married female teacher. As Effi’s passion for Keren grows, so does her unease about the close relationship between her uncle and the young daughter of her lover.

Effi’s arrival sparks more confrontation than celebration as her family, her memories and especially her reasons for running away all those years ago conspire to put her back in an old, unwelcoming place. Powerful and intimate, she must confront secrets of her past.

“Emotionally calibrated but never heavy handed, Montana underscores the belief that, when one is faced with a moral choice, love can't — and shouldn't — be used as an excuse for silence” - Jane Schoettle, Toronto International Film Festival
