A heart-warming and life-affirming film based on a true story, iMordecai stars Academy Award-nominated and two-time Emmy-winning actor Judd Hirsch as Mordecai Samels, a Polish Holocaust survivor who now lives in Miami. His son, Marvin, is an ambitious cigar maker trying to support his own family while still being there for his ageing parents. When Mordecai's ancient flip phone breaks, he purchases a new iPhone and starts to take lessons, opening him up to all kinds of novel experiences and adventures, which makes him feel like a kid again. An uplifting comedy, celebration of long-term relationships, and a love letter to the city of Miami, iMordecai urges us all to live the one life we have to the fullest.
Winner of the Audience Award at Miami Jewish Film Festival.
