2019 Festival

Autonomies, The Feature
Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 1:30pm

Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to binge-watch Autonomies, The Feature, the hit Israeli dystopian television drama written and directed by the creators of Shtisel – with an intermission. The action takes place in an alternate reality version of Israel: a nation divided into a secular State of Israel with Tel Aviv as its capital, and the Haredi Autonomy in Jerusalem run by an ultra-Orthodox group. The plot revolves around a Haredi small-time smuggler who kidnaps a little girl at the heart of a custody battle between two families – one Haredi and one secular.

Autonomies was the centerpiece of the 2019 New York Jewish Film Festival.
