Fill the Void
Sunday 2nd February 2014
Eighteen-year-old Shira, an Orthodox Hassid living in Tel Aviv, is looking forward to marrying a handsome, promising boy of her own age. But when her elder sister dies in childbirth and the father considers leaving Israel to re-marry, Shira's mother proposes a union between her daughter and son-in-law to keep her only grandchild in the country. Shira must then make the terrible choice between her heart's desire and her family duty...
As tense and gripping as any thriller, this fascinating insight into a largely closed-off world is a breathtaking exploration of the struggle between family bonds and individual freedom.
A stunning debut feature from US-Israeli director Rama Burshtein, Fill the Void, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Artificial Eye on 24th March 2014, has garnered innumerable festival awards, including an incredible Seven Israeli Academy Awards as well as Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival.
