GEFILTE FISH

Female Director(s), Comedy
Gali's family has a long-lasting tradition whereby every woman who is engaged to be married has to prepare gefilte fish for the wedding party. Gali, who is engaged to Yaron, has received a living carp from her mother and grandmother, but the poor creature seems human in her eyes, practically begging for its life. Gali is torn between the pity she feels towards the fish and the need to abide by her family tradition.

Note: This film will screen as part of the Shorts: Wake-up Call program.
