Redemption

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

Seven-year-old Geula is everything to Menachem, a devout member of the Orthodox Jewish community. However, his daughter needs medical treatment which the poorly paid widower simply can͛t afford. One possibility of raising the money is to persuade friends from his rock ͛n͛ roll past to reform the rock band he fronted in his early days, and play local simchas. Yet years have passed since that time and not only has his life drastically changed but so have the ambitions of each of his long-time friends. With an extraordinary and inventive soundtrack that elevates the daggiest of simcha music to rock ͚n͛roll cool, Redemption presents a moving and wholly unique story about unconditional parental love, the strength of male friendship, and the importance of inner integrity.

Winner Best Actor and the Ecumenical Jury Prize at the 2018 Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and the Audience Award at the 2018 Jerusalem Film Festival.
