A24's MENASHE is the Closing Night Film of the 41st Atlanta Film Festival!

directed by Joshua Z. Weinstein
USA/Israel, 2017, Yiddish, 91 minutes

Saturday, April 1, 2017, 7:30 PM — Plaza Theatre, Downstairs

Deep in the heart of New York’s ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, Menashe, a kind, hapless grocery store clerk, struggles to make ends meet and responsibly parent his young son, Rieven, following his wife Leah’s death. Tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven’s strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken. Meanwhile, though Menashe seems to bungle every challenge in his path, his rabbi grants him one special week with Rieven before Leah’s memorial. It’s his chance to prove himself a suitable man of faith and fatherhood, and restore respect among his doubters.

Executive Producer & Unit Production Manager Danelle Eliav scheduled to attend.

The Closing Night Party (sponsored by Music Matters Productions) will be held from 9 PM -12 AM at Old 4th & Swiftopen to all Closing Night ticket-holders, as well as FILMMAKER, PRODUCER and ALL-ACCESS badge-holders (includes INDUSTRY, PRESS and WEEKEND 2). Wristbands for the afterparty will be distributed at the screening.
