ESRA Cinema Club Raanana '‎Handa Handa'

The Audrey Goodman Cinema Club in Raanana

Handa Handa
Handa Handa 4‎    

Directed by ‎David Ofek & Neta Shoshani

Ronen and Orit have been together for almost three years. Both of them come from ‎highly respected Bukhari families. Ronen is the star of Handa Handa theater troupe, a ‎hit among the Bukhari community in Israel and around the world.

According to the ‎strict Bukhari tradition couples must marry after a brief acquaintance. But Ronen and ‎Orit rebel against their families and refuse to get married. Even making every effort to ‎protect Orit’s “honor” is not enough for her parents, who demand they either marry or ‎break up. Their love is trapped between tradition and modernity‏.‏
