TIS and Braun Library Film Series Virtual Conversation
Sunday, January 24th, 2:00 p.m.
Levana and Yehezkel, a married couple in a retirement home, love being together until a pair of devastating challenges suddenly threatens to divide them in The Farewell Party.
About the film:
A group of friends at a Jerusalem retirement home construct a machine for self-euthanasia in order to help a terminally ill pal in this provocative dramedy from Israel. When rumors of their assistance begin to spread, more and more people ask for their help, and the friends are faced with a life and death dilemma. Boasting a dream cast of septuagenarian talent, a finely honed visual sense and superbly ironic comic timing and dialogue, the pic pits the ethics of assisted suicide against the right to die with dignity.
