Fill The Void

A young Hasidic woman is pressurised by her family to take as a husband the widower of her recently deceased sister in Rama Burshtein’s exploration of life within an ultra-orthodox Jewish community. This makes for a fascinating drama, as she maps out the culture and societal structures that dictate life, whilst never losing perspective of Shira’s predicament. Newcomer Hadas Yaron gives an impressive performance as the young bride-to-be.
