Film of the Month: "Keren Or" ("A Ray of Light" - Dir: Lihi Sabag)

Michal, herself raised in a harsh socio-economic reality, has been a single parent to her baby daughter, Keren Or, since she was seventeen. Against the depressing background of the housing projects of Afula and Jerusalem, and caught in the day-to-day battle to survive financially and maybe even find love, unexpected developments plunge Michal into deeper crisis and call into question everything she believes in about parenthood, family and identity. Yet despite it all she shows an extraordinary resilience in her aspiration to be a caring and responsible mother and to provide for her child the life that she herself never received.
