2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: Wedding Doll
Moran Rosenblatt (Apples from the Desert) won the Israeli Academy Award for her stunning portrayal of an impossible dreamer who lives with her loving but overprotective mother in a Negev desert town.
Socially alienated by a childhood brain injury, Hagit finds escape in designing bridal gowns and dolls out of leftover materials from the toilet paper factory where she works. Despite her disabilities, Hagit is determined to map out a future in this sensitive and poignant film.
