The Farewell Party

Date: October 14, 2015Time: 7:30 pm - 12:00 am
Location:  Cedar Lee Theatre

Director: Sharon Maymon & Tal Granit • Israel & Germany • 2014 • Hebrew with English subtitles • 90 minutes

The Farewell Party tackles the thorny morality of euthanasia with compassion and wry humor. When a terminally ill friend asks amateur inventor Yehezkel to build a device that will administer a lethal dose of tranquilizers, his contraption horrifies Yehezkel’s wife, Levana. But when Levana begins to show signs of Alzheimer’s, the concept of a machine that will end her own suffering begins to have appeal.

Winner of the Peoples’ Choice Award at the 2014 Venice Film Festival.
