The Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival presents Self Made (dir Shira Geffen, Israel, 2014, 89 min, Hebrew & Arabic w/English subtitles).

Introduction by Prof. Robin Blaetz, Mount Holyoke College.

This unusual and challenging comedy follows an Israeli artist who loses her memory when her bed collapses and a Palestinian store clerk who works for the company that made the bed. As each woman’s complex personality emerges, their lives become increasingly entwined until a mix-up at a border security checkpoint finds them swapping lives, enabling each to discover hidden desires, previously inaccessible. Presented in conjunction with the Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival.

The event is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by the Communication Dept. More information about the film is available here.
