Karaoke & Opening Night Party – Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival!

OPENING NIGHT!

Karaoke & Opening Night Party
November 10, 2022
Capp Center St. Paul • 6:30 PM

Meir and Tova are a Sephardic, upper-middle-class couple, seemingly resigned to live out the rest of their semi-retirement in the banal comforts of an upscale apartment complex in a Tel Aviv suburb. When Itsik, a sexy bachelor from Miami, moves into the building’s penthouse, their lives are gleefully upended. Energized by their newfound friendship with Itsik, Meir and Tova undergo personal transformations, but will their relationship as a couple be a casualty of expressing their individual desires? When Itsik begins to pull away from Meir and Tova, the couple’s obsession with the bachelor grows into a full-blown identity crisis. With its title playing on the duality of the kitschy and the operatic that coincide within the social act of amateur singing, Karaoke is an optimistic portrait of midlife self-discovery, laced with both poignant wisdom and barbed humor. Minnesota Premiere!

Film followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Moshe Rosenthal.

Stick around for a special Opening Night party (with karaoke provided by Twin Cities Karaoke) following the screening!
