DJC Movie Night: The Matchmaker
June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Haifa during the summer of 1968, and young Arik finds his lazy vacation from school interrupted by an unexpected assignment: doing background checks for Yankele, a mysterious, scarred matchmaker who lives in a colorful, low-rent part of town. In “The Matchmaker,” written and directed by Avi Nesher, the dual stories of Arik’s coming-of-age and Yankele’s past experience in the Holocaust play out during this period of cultural change in Israel.
Winner of 4 Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Actor and Best Actress, and Best Picture nominee, this film blends comedic moments with poignant sensitivity and heartfelt drama as our protagonists learn to live and love again.
