Event description: 

As Eyal finishes the traditional Jewish week of mourning for his late son, his wife Vicky urges him to return to their routine – but just because the shiva has ended doesn’t mean it’s life as usual. Each coping in their own way, Eyal and Vicky both attempt to regain a sense of control over their future, as they struggle to discover that there are still things in life worth living for. Asaph Polonsky’s debut feature ONE WEEK AND A DAY provides a nuanced perspective on loss that is humorous, touching, and above all else, life affirming.

Directed by Asaph Polonsky (Israel, 2016)
