Dr. Eric Goldman, adjunct professor of cinema, posted a review of a new Israeli film, “The Wedding Plan,” by director Rama Burshtein, in the Jewish Standard.

In an interview with Goldman, Burshtein said she was tired of seeing film portraits of her ultra-Orthodox Israeli community in a negative light and decided to add a voice that she felt was missing. Her 2012 film, “Fill the Void,” won the Israeli Ophir Award as the best film of that year and went on to play at the New York Film Festival. Goldman will be teaching a course on Israeli cinema at Yeshiva College in Fall 2017.
