My Father My Lord

A Film by: David Volach

(Israel, 2007, 73 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Assi Dayan, Sharon Hacohen Bar,        Ilan Grif)

Israeli director David Volach’s chamber drama My Father, My Lord provides an intense character study  of a rabbi in an Orthodox neighborhood, whose letter-of-the-law application of Talmudic tenets takes    an exacting toll on his life. He must thus grapple with the conflicting demands of his belief system      and his familial obligations to his wife and child.
