Screening of The World Is Funny: A Collection of Tragicomic, Interwoven Stories
In this wonderfully bizarre series of vignettes, Israeli filmmaker Shemi Zarhin meanders through the tale of a fractured family. Although they appear unrelated, the stories gradually weave together towards a satisfying and emotional climax. Humorous, but also poignant, the film pieces together the lives of estranged siblings who persevered abandonment as children and are now growing to cope with adult challenges. The film earned a record-breaking 15 Ophir Award nominations and became Israel's number one box office hit. This screening is a special joint presentation of the Embassy of Israel and the Washington Jewish Film Festival. The film is in Hebrew with English subtitles.
