For My Father

Advance online tickets subject to availability. Standby available at Box Office.

Nominated for 7 Israeli Academy Awards and a major award winner at the Moscow, Cinequest, and Sofia Film Festivals, Dror Zahavi’s terrific thriller, FOR MY FATHER, is the story of a young Palestinian man forced on a suicide mission in Tel Aviv to redeem his father’s honor.  Given a second chance when the fuse on his explosive vest fails to detonate, Tarek must spend the weekend living amongst the people he was planning to kill as he awaits its repair.  To his surprise he connects with several Israelis on the outskirts of society, including the beautiful and rebellious Keren, who has cut off contact with her Orthodox family.  But with the deadly load of explosives still strapped to his body, Tarek finds himself caught between the men that sent him (who can blow up his bomb remotely), the Israeli police patrolling the streets, and his new-found friends.  Discovering a new spark to his life, a decision must be made as the 48 hours come to a close…
