“Avi Nesher’s brilliant, haunting Past Life may be his best film yet — and that’s saying a lot.” Jerusalem Post
“Profoundly moving.” Variety
Two Israeli sisters reveal a dark secret about their father’s past in wartime Poland in feted Israeli director Avi Nesher’s latest film. Beautifully shot with fine performances from Nelly Tagar (Zero Motivation) and rising Israeli star Joy Rieger (also in this year’s Milk & Honey), the film explores the lingering feeling of guilt endured by survivors, complicated family dynamics and Israel’s fast-shifting cultural landscape in the tumultuous 1970s.
