Holy Lands Screening + Q&A with writer/director Amanda Sthers

Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz will present a special screening of Holy Lands, a film by Amanda Sthers. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at 7:30pm and will be followed by a Q&A with the writer/director.

The film is inspired by Sthers' latest book Holy Lands; a witty, heartwarming, and heart-wrenching epistolary novel, that has become a motion picture.

Facing a crossroads in life, Harry Rosenmerck (Academy Award nominee James Caan) an Ashkenazy American cardiologist, leaves New York and his family with an unlikely plan to start a pig farm in Israel, angering local communities. His conflict with the town Rabbi, Moshe Cattan (BAFTA awardwinner Tom Hollander) slowly turns into a friendship that leads him to reevaluate his relationship withhis estranged family, including his difficult ex-wife (Rosanna Arquette), his 34-year-old perpetual student daughter (Efrat Dor), and his gay playwright son (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers). Through an emotional journey, this dysfunctional group tries to make their way back to each other, renewing ties when they all need it the most.

This is my most personal film and it’s the one that’s made me the most proud because it’s sincere. It reflects my own flaws and vulnerability. Amanda Sthers.
