CAL_0216 0217 0225 Seven Blessings FEbruary 15

In this bittersweet dramedy sweeping the Israeli Academy Awards with 10 wins, including Best Film, a boisterous Moroccan-Jewish clan reunites for a cross-cultural wedding that surfaces festering secrets. In early ‘90s Jerusalem, a diverse family celebrates a Moroccan-Jewish bride and French-Ashkenazi groom’s union, infusing the occasion with joy, laughter, and a vibrant mix of languages. Yet, as the Seven Blessings ritual unfolds—a week of festive meals honoring the newlyweds—the facade cracks, exposing deep-seated wounds rooted in ancient tradition. With a top Israeli cast and inspired by the filmmaker’s multiethnic background, this authentic, enveloping tale delves into a complex web of relationships, culture, and forgiveness amid clashing interpretations of shared memories.
