The Israeli Lens

The 22nd annual Israel Film Festival descends on the Big Apple with 30 feature films, documentaries and TV shows.

The event opens with Ayelet Menahemi’s “Noodle,” an award-winning drama about a 37-year-old widowed flight attendant who finds herself caring for an abandoned Chinese boy whose mother has been deported from Israel. Some 25 filmmakers will attend screenings and question-and-answer sessions.
