“...a testament to self-empowerment and the deep-seated force of religious life.” — Woodstock Film Festival
Director Noa Roth’s parents divorced 30 years ago, and their split shook the insular religious community of Bnei Brak. Her father a revered community rabbi, and her mother a prolific author, Roth reflects upon a family divided between the conflicting worlds of the ultra-orthodox and secular, and the deep family secrets and fractured relationships at the crux of the split.
Told with respect and love for both worlds, Family Matters is a testament to self-empowerment and the deep-seated force of religious life, and is a moving exploration of intricate family bonds. Winner of the Audience Award at 2015 Docaviv International Film Festival.
