The Judith Trust are holding a special event in honour of Jewish Disability Awareness month. We are screening Next To Her’, in partnership with UK Jewish Film, at JW3.
‘Next To Her’ has already attracted great critical acclaim at Cannes Film Festival with this engrossing and unusual tale of two sisters. With a largely absent mother, daughter Chelli is the principle carer of her strong-willed and disabled sister Gabby, played here with impressive commitment and sensitivity. When a potential boyfriend appears on the scene it becomes increasingly unclear who is dependent on whom. With surprising twists and outstanding natural performances all round this is a highly original, brave and sometimes funny story of intimate relationships.
The Judith Trust will be launching the Jewish Siblings network at this event.
The film is on Sunday 13th March at 6pm, and on Monday 14th March at 9pm.
Tickets are £12, and £6 concessions.
