"The Other Widow" (Promotional still)

A debut feature film from celebrated shorts director Ma’Ayan Rypp,” “The Other Widow” is a dark, comedic drama about a modern single woman and her quest to define herself after loss. Ella (Dana Ivgy, “Zero Motivation,” BJFF 2014, “Cinema Sabaya,” BJFF 2022) is a 34 year old theater dresser whose lover dies suddenly. Keeping her identity secret, she attends her lover’s shiva, steeping herself into a world that was once forbidden to her. Ella shares intimate moments with her lover’s parents, brother, and, most notably, his wife (Ania Bukstein, “A Quiet Heart,” BJFF 2017). In this coming-of-age story, Ella eventually realizes she will need to reveal her secret so she can properly mourn and go on with her life.

Nominated for 9 Israeli Ophirs, 2023.

Followed by a pre-recorded conversation with director Ma’ayan Rypp, and actors Dana Ivgy and Ania Bukstein, moderated by BJF artistic director Lisa Gossels.
