Fire Dance (Rikud Esh)

Fire Dance

18-year-old Feigi grew up in a broken home, without a father figure. She attaches her future happiness to Nathan, the 35-year-old married son of the leader of the ultra-orthodox Jewish community in which they both live. Following a failed suicide attempt, Feigi grows dangerously close to Nathan, who is expecting his first child with his wife. Feigi's feelings and her longing for a relationship with Nathan can never materialise. It is this delicate tension, between passion and fulfillment, set on the backdrop of a conservative, devout community – in which Fire Dance exists. 

JIFF presents the Australian Premiere screenings of the first two episodes of this exhilarating new series from acclaimed filmmaker Rama Burshtein-Shai (Fill the Void, The Wedding Plan).  

Winner Best Actor Award at Series Mania.
