Melting Away - Chandler
MELTING AWAY (Israel)
Director: Doron Eran
Drama - 90 minutes, Hebrew w/English Subtitles
Harkins Chandler Crossroads 12 Tues. Feb 21st, 7 PM
A wrenching family relationship, bold realities of transgender and gay culture, the pain of seeking to recapture a lost past, the facing and coming to terms with dying. Here is a film that will draw you into some of life's most emotional and challenging complexities, a human drama ripe for melodrama, yet never exploitive, and only rarely allowing for the deeply rooted emotions that the characters clearly convey to bubble to the surface and explode. Thoughtful, skillful direction of restrained, beautifully authentic performances instead provide for intimate, sometimes tender, even humorous scenes of home life, a sterile hospital room, parent, child, spouse, and peer interplay. All of this in the context of subject matter we rarely see treated in Israeli films. Leaving this film, your involvement with it will not be MELTING AWAY.
Rabbi Dean Shapiro, Spiritual Leader of Temple Emanuel in Tempe, AZ
Rabbi Shapiro received his Rabbinic Ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles, CA and his Bachelor's Degree from Harvard College. He has addressed audiences across New Zealand and Australia, and led prayer in the Houses of Parliament in both countries.
Rabbi Shapiro's passion for social justice and the message of his being openly gay say volumes about the equality of all under God. His calling now, and his work previously with sales and marketing of film, makes him an ideal speaker for the film Melting Away.
