Join us for a screening of the iconic film by Georgian-Israeli director Dover Koshashvili, plus a Q&A with Israeli film editor and producer Yael Perlov.

Twenty years ago, Georgian-Israeli director Dover Koshashvili’s debut feature burst onto the international film festival circuit, earning numerous awards and heralding a new generation of Israeli filmmaking. It might never have been made without the assistance of Koshashvili’s professor at Tel Aviv University, Yael Perlov, who also edited the film. Join us to watch the movie and hear from Yael, who will speak about her numerous films with Koshashvili and take questions from the audience.

A comedy-drama about an Israeli graduate student under pressure from his traditional Georgian-Jewish family to marry a suitable woman while being in love with an older divorcée, “Late Marriage” features an iconic performance by the late Ronit Elkabetz and was a breakout role for Lior Ashkenazi as Zaza.
