MELTING AWAY - Minnesota Premiere!
Thursday, March 14 at 7pm

This heartfelt Israeli drama follows the story of a Tel Aviv family drawn into crisis after the parents discover their son is secretly a cross-dresser and expels him from home. Years later, when the father is diagnosed with cancer, the family is reunited when the son, now a young woman earning a living as a cabaret singer, reappears in their lives. "Melting Away" is the first Israeli feature film dealing with parents learning to understand their transgender child.

"Melting Away" was conceived after the brutal murder at the Tel Aviv LGBT Youth Center and the deep shock felt by Doron Eran, director, and his partner, screenwriter Bili Ben Moshe, after hearing of parents refusing to visit their injured children at the hospital.
