Director Dorit Hakim and and actress Yuval Scharf discussed their film 'Moon in the 12th House' after its screening on the Opening Night of the New York Jewish Film Festival at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
When two estranged young sisters are reunited, they must come to terms with each other and the circumstances that tore them apart: Lenny had stayed in their childhood home to take care of their father, while Mira left for a faster life in Tel Aviv. Despite their divergent paths, love and affection bind the characters and lead them toward fragile redemption. This impressive debut feature by Dorit Hakim features unforgettable performances by Yuval Scharf (Ana Arabia, Footnote) and Yaara Pelzig (Policeman).
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
