Fill the Void
Pittsburgh Premiere
Director: Rama Burshtein
2012, Israel, 90 minutes
Hebrew with subtitles


In this story about an Orthodox Hassidic family from Tel Aviv, a young woman must make a decision that will affect her life and that of her family forever. Although there are prayers, traditional music, and religious ceremonies, in the end this is a universal story of a man and a woman looking for happiness. A confident debut from director Burshstein (a haredi woman herself), FILL THE VOID offers a rare glimpse into a unique and complex world.
