The Stone Flower

Directed by: Sarit Haymian
50 Minutes, 2007

This documentary follows two elderly Jewish women, who immigrated from Iran to Israel 50 years ago and currently live in a deprived area. Married in their teens, they moved from the domineering homes of their parents to those of their husbands. Now, aged 70, they reflect on the choices they have made, and those they were forced to make. Anxious to learn from their experiences, Sarit, the director, a 30 yr old unmarried Israeli-born Iranian, tries to map out a future for herself. The film raises questions about love, family, femininity and dreams.
