Following their international hit series Shtisel, writers and directors Ori Elon and Yehonatan Indursky return with this gripping dystopian thriller series. Set in the present day, Autonomies imagines an alternative reality in which Israel is split into two separate entities: the secular State of Israel, whose capital is Tel Aviv, and, on the other side of a dividing wall, an ultra-orthodox autonomy based in Jerusalem. The battle over the custody of a girl who was born into a Haredi family but has been raised by secular parents threatens to push the two territories into irrevocable chaos. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion which will try to determine just how much of what Autonomies portrays is already a reality.

Followed by a discussion with Prof. Yaakov Yadgar, filmmaker Stephen Brown and others
