VIRTUAL SCREENING AND Q+A: HBO MAX’S VALLEY OF TEARS
November 8 - November 10$5
Dir. Yaron Zilberman. 60 min/episode | 2020 | Israel, US.
The first two episodes of the series will be available Nov 8, 9 am-Nov 10, 11:59 PM. After beginning to watch the program, you will have 6 hours to finish your viewing. A harrowing, ten-episode limited drama series inspired by the true events of the 1973 Yom Kippur War in Israel. Leading up to the ultimate battle, the series follows young combatants thrust into a war that was later revealed could have been avoided by leaders they blindly trusted. Valley of Tears focuses on the universality of heroism and sacrifice through four unique and intertwined stories: a famous bohemian television star in search of his estranged son, a newly enlisted soldier; a commander and his newly befriended intelligence analyst; tank crewman who represent Israel’s Black Panthers social justice reform movement; and a female officer who refuses to leave the battlefields, disobeying direct orders to evacuate. Shot at the actual location of the war, these intimate portraitures highlight the tension, anxieties and sentiments of the country’s people through a magnified lens, with the unprecedented outcome of an unlikely victory. Tickets include a live Q+A with series creators and writers Ron Leshman, Amit Cohen, and Yaron Zilberman on Nov 10, 6 PM EST.
