Discover award-winning Israeli TV comedy Significant Other, with a hybrid screening and an in-person discussion with lead actress and co-writer Dana Modan at the Marlene Meyerson JCC of Manhattan.
A sophisticated rom-com set in Tel Aviv, Significant Other follows two lonely neighbors in their late 40’s – a single woman (Dana Modan) and a newly divorced man (Assi Cohen) – who find themselves living next door to each other and hesitantly embark on an obstacle-filled relationship which reflects how precarious life can be.
Winner of five Israeli TV Awards including Best Comedy, the series stars two of Israel’s premiere actors in Modan and Cohen.
Dana Modan, who will participate in a discussion following the in-person screening, is a household name in Israel, best known for her appearance in cult hit Israeli sitcom Florentine, and writing multiple primetime TV series.
