Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Directed by Shlomi Elkabetz & Ronit Elkabetz

A tribute screening to the late director and actress Ronit Elkabetz. Designed to throw a light on the ancient religious legal system which controls divorce proceedings in Israel, this spellbinding drama highlights how women today are still at the mercy of both their husbands and the religious courts.
