GET – HA’MISHPAT SHEL VIVIAN AMSALEM

Director: SHLOMI ELKABETZ, RONIT ELKABETZ
GERMANY, FRANCE, ISRAEL
2014, 115'

The trial story of Viviane Amsalem’s five year fight to obtain her divorce in front of the only legal authority competent for divorce cases in Israel, the Rabbinical Court. Viviane and her lawyer must face the uncompromising attitude of Elisha, the husband, who doesn’t even respond to the rabbis convocations. When he is finally obliged to come to court, he keeps refusing the divorce (gett) even though they’ve been separated for years. Witnesses are called, the procedure drags on, while Viviane is still unable to recover her dignity.
