"The Monkey House" Film Screening

Northampton Center for the Arts (33 Hawley St., Northampton MA 01060)


The 18th annual Pioneer Valley Jewish Film Festival continues with a screening of The Monkey House at the Northampton Center for the Arts!  A once-successful novelist tries to revive his fading career by launching a highly inventive plan with the help of an enigmatic young actress. Set in the 1980s, legendary Israeli director Avi Nesher’s latest film is a delightful, sophisticated mixture of literary mystery, witty comedy, and moving character study a la Almodóvar melodrama, as two lost souls make a connection that alters their lives forever. Nominated for 11 Ophirs (Israeli Academy Awards).
