This 2012 Israeli drama written and directed by Rama Burshtein focuses on life among the Haredi Jewish community in Tel Aviv. Shira (Hadas Yaron), a young woman living in an ultra-Orthodox enclave in Tel Aviv, faces a choice not unlike those faced by the heroines of Jane Austen novels and Hollywood romantic comedies. Which man will she marry? For Shira, this is an especially agonizing question because it forces her to weigh the claims of family loyalty, religious duty and her own desires. “Fill the Void” has been described as the first feature film directed by an Orthodox Israeli woman, and it is one of a small handful of modern movies that depict religious devotion from within.
Discussion of the film will be led by Dr. Joel Rosenberg, noted scholar of Jewish literature at Tufts University.
