FIG TREE | GPJFF Lindy CineMondays 2019

Ethiopian-Israeli director Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian’s award-winning feature film, FIG TREE, will premiere in Philadelphia this Monday evening, April 15th, at the Lightbox Film Center as one of the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival's Spotlight Films.

"A potent glimpse of adolescence amid civil war," (- Variety Film Reviews), Davidian's critically-acclaimed breakout film has left Israeli and worldwide audiences speechless. Following it's 2018 debut, the film was nominated for 5 Ophir Awards (Israel's Oscars) including Best Film, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography- winning for the last- and continues to wow on the international film festival circuit after having taken home the prestigious Audentia Award from the Toronto International Film Festival this past fall.
