The distributor is expected to finalise a North American deal with The Match Factory for Rama Burshtein’s Venice premiere on Saturday morning.

Through The Wall

Through The Wall, a 2016 nominee for an Israeli Academy Ophir award, is a rom-com about a young religious woman who keeps her wedding date and resolves to find a new spouse when her former betrothed gets cold feet with one month to go.

The film also played at Telluride and stars Noa Koler, Amos Tamam, Oz Zehavi, Irit Sheleg Roni Merhavi and Dafi Alpern.

Burshtein and producer Assaf Amir of Norma Productions won numerous awards including the Venice Coppa Volpi for their first film Fill The Void, including the 2012 best picture Ophir in Israel.
