Seret: Shelter + Q&A

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Eran Riklis| 2017 | Israel | Hebrew, German and Arabic with English subtitles | Starring Neta Riskin, Golshifteh Farahani, Yehuda Almagor | 93 mins

Both screenings will be followed by a Q&A with director and writer Eran Riklis.

Two women are trapped in a safehouse where nothing is safe and no one can be trusted.

Shelter is a subtle thriller set in Germany involving Mona, a Lebanese woman and Naomi, an Israeli Mossad agent sent to protect their informant while recovering from plastic surgery for her new identity. Mona and Naomi - together for two weeks in a quiet apartment in Hamburg. A safe house. A shelter.

No one saw what was coming, no one knew that this supposedly quiet fortnight would turn into an abyss and that shelter would need to be found elsewhere. The intimacy of the relationship that develops between the two women is exposed to the threat of terror that is engulfing the world today. In this game of deception, beliefs are questioned and choices are made that are not their own.

And yet their fate takes a surprising turn in this suspense-laden, elegant neo-noir.

The Private Screening on Monday 14 May is sponsored by ORT
