The Other Story - סיפור אחר

Scottish Premiere: Wed 08/5 at 20:30, The Cameo, Edinburgh.

A dysfunctional family, looking to make sense of their daughter and granddaughter’s choice to commit to a new life and stay steadfast to her love, and doing whatever it takes to get to the truth.


“Family conflicts speak to much wider divisions in society in The Other Story, Avi Nesher’s warm hearted ensemble drama which deftly explores an age that is all too quick to label, judge and condemn what it doesn’t understand”
Allan Hunter, Screen Daily

From one of Israel’s most important directors Avi Nesher The Other Story examines, with warmth and wit, the difficulties a secular Jewish family has in coming to terms with their recently ultra-orthodox daughter’s wish to marry her previously ‘bad boy’ musician and now Haredi boyfriend.
