“Past Life”

MASSACHUSETTS PREMIERE
“A gripping mystery thriller.” Hollywood Reporter

In 1977, two Israeli sisters, Stephi (Joy Rieger, Live and Become), an aspiring classical composer and singer, and Nana (Nelly Tagar, Zero Motivation), a combative liberal journalist, investigate a wartime mystery that’s cast a shadow over their lives. As they unravel secrets from the past, they confront the taboo topic of their father’s experiences in Poland during World War II. Avi Nesher (The Wonders, The Matchmaker, Turn Left at the End of the World, all premiered by NCJF), himself the son of Holocaust survivors, based his gripping screenplay on the wartime diaries of Dr. Baruch Milch and the film’s hauntingly beautiful score was composed by Ella Milch-Sheriff, the inspiration for the Stephi character.(Dir: Avi Nesher | Israel | 2016 | 110m | Hebrew, English, German & Polish w/ English subtitles)

“A Triumph. Moving, original, quirky and suspenseful.” Jerusalem Post

“An emotionally resonant exploration of the legacy of sin.” Playlist

“Nesher’s Best Film Yet. Profoundly moving.” Variety
