Directed by brother and sister team, Ronit & Shlomi Elkabetz, “GETT: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem” is Israel’s official submission to the Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category and has been nominated for a Golden Globe.
What’s more important than any prestigious award is that this groundbreaking film is currently causing Israel to question its current archaic law that only allows a woman to divorce if her husband approves. In an unprecedented move, a board of Israel’s top Rabbis will convene over the coming month to screen “GETT” and give consideration to changing this law. An inspiring example of film changing society as we know it.
