    Event Info

    The acclaimed film Working Woman is a timely and devastating story dealing with social issues in Israel, expertly told by longtime feminist filmmaker Michal Aviad. The film opens in theaters in Spring 2019. It is currently available for booking.

    Orna, (Liron Ben Shlush) is the mother of three young children with a husband struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family Orna returns to the workplace, landing a job with a former army superior, Benny (Menashe Noy) who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink.
