In the framework of Jesscafe and in collaboration with Holon Cinematheque, we invite you to a special screening of the Israeli film The Unorthodox, on Monday, January 28 at 7pm.

Ophir Toubul
 will give a lecture before the screening. The lecture and film will be in Hebrew. 

Israel 2018 | 92 minutes | Hebrew | Hebrew subtitles

The year is 1983 and Yaakov Cohen, the owner of a Jerusalem printing press, is tired from being pushed around. It seems that he was born on the wrong side, with the wrong family name and in a moment's decision he decides to establish a Sephardic-ultra-Orthodox list that will run to the Jerusalem municipality. He gathers two friends, and together they improvise a campaign - no means, no connections, no money, but with much rage, passion and a sense of justice.

The Unorthodox is the first feature film directed by Eliran Malka, best known as the creator of the hit Israeli TV series Shababnikim. Inspired by the unique formation story of Israel's Shas political party, which created a movement for Israel's disenfranchised Sephardic community, the film is a comic drama about events that reshaped Israeli society and continue to resonate today. The Unorthodox also marks a return to the screen for lead actor Shuli Rand, who endeared himself to audiences in films such as Ushipizin by Gidi Dar, Marco Polo: The Missing Chapter by Rafi Bukai, and Life According to Agfa by Assi Dayan. In The Unorthodox Shuli Rand plays the lead role of Ya’akov Cohen, a man who, in wanting a small change, transformed an entire country.
