Gett, The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Gett, The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Viviane is refused a gett; a Jewish divorce which can only be given by a court of rabbinical judges and with the consent of her husband. The exhausting and absurd protocols Viviane is forced to endure, and the anguish caused by not being able to start a new life, does not stop her. A rare, often grimly humorous insight into the workings of the rabbinical court and its treatment of women.

Winner of Best Film, Jerusalem Film Festival, 2014, screened in Directors Fortnight in Cannes, 2014.
