Set in the south of Israel near the Gaza border where beleaguered citizens live with incoming rocket fire, longtime pals Shaul and Nissan attempt to rob a postal bank. They think they’ve got a great a plan, but they mangle the job royally, and Shaul is collared and sent to prison. Years later, upon his release, Shaul is less than pleased to be greeted by the newly religious Nissan who seeks his forgiveness in the week leading up to Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. This exuberant goofball buddy-film highlights the exceptional rapport between the film’s creators, directors, and stars, Hanan Savyon and Guy Amir, best known for their hit television series Asfur.


Producer of Forgiveness Adar Shafran will join us in a live talk, Thursday, April 1, at 12 pm. All passholders and ticketholders will receive an exclusive invitation via email to the Zoom conversation. More information on the talk and the filmmaker here.
