Picture: From the movie Shiva

In year 2020, it was 115 years since Bertha von Suttner became the first woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize and 100 years since married women were finally liberated from the guardianship of their spouses and granted legal majority in Sweden. Therefore, Kolnoa (Bio) brought the topic of women in Israeli Cinema before the pandemic came. As first movie we introduced To Take a Wife and on December 12 (2 years after), we will show its second part the movie Shiva.

About movie:
Shiva (Israel 2008 | 103 minutes | French, Hebrew, Moroccan Arabic | English subtitles)
The family gathers for the traditional seven days of mourning (shiva) in which they are not allowed to leave the house. The intensity of this situation is a catalyst for more than just emotional support and communal grief. Jealousy, gossip, long term rivalry and financial problems come to the fore, as each of the siblings is faced with their frustrated ambitions. Shiva is the second chapter in the excellent trilogy by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz.

The program is organized by Paideia, Embassy of Israel Stockholm, Jewish Community in Stockholm and Bajit.

Registration is obligatory by December 5th.
The event is held in English. Free entrance. Age limit 15.
