3:30 pm: One Week and a Day
As Eyal finishes the traditional week of mourning for his late son, his wife urges him to return to a normal routine. But it’s just not life as normal for Eyal. Each copes in their own way, trying to regain control over their own future as they struggle to discover that there are still things in life for which are worth living. In the process, Eyal befriends some young kittens, and the teenage neighbor boy introduces Eyal to marijuana and musical escapes. This multi-award-winning film is humorous, touching, and above all else, life-affirming.
98 minutes – Hebrew with English subtitles

Intermission with Israeli-style fare and refreshments.

6:00 pm: The Cakemaker
In this critically-acclaimed sweeping romance, Thomas, a young German baker, has an affair with Oren, a married Israeli man. After Oren unexpectedly dies in an auto crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers about his death. Using a false identity, he goes to work for Oren’s widow, Anat, in her floundering cafe. His much-in-demand baked pastries make the cafe famous. Thomas becomes deeply involved in Anat’s life, which stretches the lie about himself to the point of no return.
113 minutes – Hebrew, English, and German with English subtitles
The Cakemaker is suitable for high school and above

This program is co-sponsored by Temple Israel’s Israel Engagement Committee and the St. Louis Israeli community.
