Event description:

When a Bedouin takes a second bride, his first wife chafes against her changing status while his daughter chases her own dreams of autonomy. "This emotionally intelligent first feature offers a sympathetic but clear-eyed look at the tangled skein of inequalities that entrap women (and the men they love and resent) in a Bedouin village." (Ella Taylor, Variety).

"Sand Storm" won the Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema Dramatic section at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and Best Film at the 2016 Ophir Awards, Israel's Academy Awards.

The evening begins with the screening of the film followed by a discussion of how its themes relate to the middah of nedivut (generosity), led by Valerie Edwards.
