I Thee Wed
Director Anat Maskens’ father returns to his ultra orthodox Jewish roots, leaving her secular mother clinging to memories of their 30-year marriage. Each parent struggles: he with his wife’s unwillingness to partake fully in the life that brings him joyously closer to the Almighty, she with a sense of abandonment and the gradual erosion of their shared lifestyle. A tender recounting of love’s endurance in the face of opposing outlooks.
