ReelAbilities Closing Night: Shoelaces
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Fairfax, VA
Share this event:


Shoelaces tells the story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his special-needs son, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy. Reubens (60) kidneys are failing and his son Gadi (35), wants to donate one of his own kidneys to help save his fathers life. However, the transplant committee objects to the procedure claiming that Rueben, acting as Gadis sole legal guardian, does not have the right to authorize such an invasive procedure. Gadi, who recently lost his mother, is afraid of losing his father as well. He feels he finally has the chance to do something meaningful; to become a man and stand on his own. Hes furious with the committees decision and sets out to fight for his right to save his fathers life. Through the films portrayal of a relationship full of love, rejection and co-dependency, it manages to shed some light and question the importance of human life, human connection and if life is even possible without it either one of them.

Enjoy Hamantashen made by Sunflower Bakery and hear from Laurie Wexler, Founder and President of Sunflower Bakery.
