SERET UK 2019 is back from April 29th to May 12th, and will be hitting cinema screens in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Brighton, and, for the first time, Cambridge, bringing the best in contemporary Israeli film and TV.
The SERET Festivals are the only festivals dedicated entirely to Israeli productions, but this year, we have added a new element to our programmes, selecting some excellent films made by leading Israeli directors who are working world-wide.
Our 2019 programme is richly diverse, covering the broad scope of secular and religious life amongst all of Israel’s communities. Our selected films and documentaries comment on the plight of ‘the other’ through examining immigration, sexual transition and disability. We have chosen films which examine fatherhood and family trauma with heart and soul; which open the lid on suppressed political intrigues, which share religious and spiritual journeys, and which demonstrate the effects of the wars of yesterday and today.
Come see for yourself.
