GILA WHO WALKS ALONE

FICTION | 20 minutes | France, Israel | 2021


Gila, an Orthodox Jewish woman, struggles to find her own voice inside her family's crowded apartment. Her road to self-determination goes through a date with a deaf-blind man and a nightly journey by foot to the tomb of Rachel the Matriarch – a holy place of Judaism and embodiment of femininity.
