Watch Footnote (2012 Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film) in Sydney for only $6 for seniors ($12 general) at the Young at Heart Seniors Film Festival. By Israeli director Joseph Cedar, Footnote is a clever satire set in the world of Talmudic studies.

Premiere
FOOTNOTE PG
Dendy Opera Quays – Sunday 25 March – 12:30pm

Dir: Joseph Cedar, Israel, 2011, 106 mins, Hebrew (English subtitles)
Cast: Lior Ashkenazi, Schlomo Bar-Aba, Alma Zack

This clever satire set in the cut-throat world of academia is also a witty look at father and son relationships.

Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are both eccentric professors, who have dedicated their lives to their work in Talmudic Studies. The father is a stubborn purist who has never been recognised for his work; his son is an up-and-coming star in the field. When the prestigious and coveted Israel Prize is announced, father and son are both candidates…and therefore rivals. Pride, ambition, filial duty and family dysfunction are brought to the fore in this wise and very subtle comedy of manners.

 

“Funny and smart, told with wild, inventive cinematic flourishes. Joseph Cedar pulls off a feat of intellectual and cinematic elegance.” – Entertainment Weekly
