Four Israeli films that focus on personal identity and sexuality are presented in the Faigele Film Festival, the JCC in Manhattan’s third annual LGBTQ movie series. The program opens with Orna Ben Dor’s “Mom, I Didn’t Kill Your Daughter” (2007), which tells parallel stories of two men who discover that they were actually born female. Avi Nesher’s “Hasodot” (“The Secrets”) (2007), about an Orthodox rabbi’s daughter who struggles with her feelings for a woman in her religious seminary, also will be screened.
