Acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Nir Bergman (Broken Wings, Intimate Grammar) returns with his grandest and most evocative tableau to date.
In a series of affecting vignettes, four women at fragile stages in their lives have chance encounters with a drifter named Neta. A lesbian musician struggles with pregnancy; a single mother can’t get through to her teenage daughter; a wife finds her seemingly idyllic marriage fraying; and a successful businesswoman reckons with her sister’s mental disability.
Saving Neta is a richly imagined ode to femininity, parenthood, and the human fabric that connects us all.
Co-presented by Reel Affirmations
Presented in partnership with GLOE–the Kurlander Program for GLBT Outreach & Engagement.
- Saving Neta weaves a thoughtful story about the interconnectedness of us all, about paying it forward, and about the ripple effect that even brief encounters can cause. ― Atlanta Jewish Times
