Best Of The Fest: Karaoke Film Screening

Join us to screen Karaoke–an optimistic portrait of midlife self-discovery.

* Thursday, February 9, 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join us for The Best of Fest at the Osher Marin JCC, featuring three must-see films from The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.

The Fest opens with the screening of the film Karaoke, about a semi-retired, Sephardic upper-middle-class couple who has their life gleefully upended by a sexy bachelor from Miami!

Meir and Tova are a Sephardic upper middle class couple, seemingly resigned to live out the rest of their semi-retirement in the banal comforts of an upscale apartment complex in a Tel Aviv suburb.

When Itsik, a sexy bachelor from Miami, moves into the building’s penthouse, their lives are gleefully upended. Energized by their newfound friendship with Itsik, Meir and Tova undergo personal transformations, but will their relationship as a couple be a casualty of expressing their individual desires?

When Itsik begins to pull away from Meir and Tova, the couple’s obsession with the bachelor grows into a full-blown identity crisis. What follows is an entertaining foray into masculinity, the institution of marriage, social status, narcissism and conformity as they relate to a “new Israeli” class identity.

Taking inspiration from his own family, director Moshe Rosenthal has created a special film that focuses on a major population in modern Israel—the Sephardic middle class—that is underrepresented in cinema. With its title playing on the duality of the kitschy and the operatic that coincide within the social act of amateur singing.
