Join us for a special outdoor screening of the award-winning film Laces.
Nominated for eight Israeli Academy Awards including Best Film, Laces is a wholly engaging, tender family 'dramedy' about the knotty relationship between an aging, irascible mechanic and the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned long before.
It is a charming tale full of optimism and humour. Reuben’s kidneys are failing. His son Gadi wants to donate one of his own kidneys to help save his father’s life. A rare, honest depiction of special-needs characters, told with gentle humor and sensitivity, Laces is the highly personal project of director Jacob Goldwasser, himself a parent of a special-needs child.
