Saving Neta

Dir. Nir Bergman | 90 min
Narrative Israel 2016 Hebrew with English subtitles DC Premiere

Thursday, May 106:15 PM Bethesda Row Cinema

Sunday, May 132:15 PM Edlavitch DCJCC

Acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Nir Bergman (Broken Wings, Intimate Grammar) returns with his grandest and most evocative tableau to date.

In a series of affecting vignettes, four women at fragile stages in their lives have chance encounters with a drifter named Neta. A lesbian musician struggles with pregnancy; a single mother can’t get through to her teenage daughter; a wife finds her seemingly idyllic marriage fraying; and a successful businesswoman reckons with her sister’s mental disability.

Saving Neta is a richly imagined ode to femininity, parenthood, and the human fabric that connects us all.
