ELISH’S NOTEBOOKS

Showtimes

INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE After the death of their emotionally distant mother, Elisheva Rise, her seven children discover a secret cache of journals that she kept for over half a century. Unusually, these were written not in her own voice, but from the perspectives of each of her children, beginning with their birth. Now, filmed by Elish’s grandson Golan, his father, aunt and uncles each read through “their” journal, emotionally confronting their past and their complex feelings for their lost parent.
