Earlier this year I called Israeli writer-director Asaph Polonsky “a strong new voice in Israeli cinema.” Well, now you can see him right here in South Florida, as he makes the rounds at local theaters to discuss his debut feature, One Week and a Day (Shavua ve Yom) in person.
His film first made the festival rounds in our area with screenings at the Key West Film Festival and the Miami Jewish Film Festival. The MJFF’s director Igor Shteyrenberg will moderate a Q&A after the film’s premiere theatrical screening tonight, at the Coral Gables Art Cinema. Expect the evening to begin with a wine reception at 7 p.m., followed by the film at 8. To purchase tickets, visit this link: www.gablescinema.com/events/one-week-and-a-day.

Saturday, May 13
