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.
