About the Film

GETT, THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM | גט, המשפט של ויויאן אמסלם

Special Tribute to the late Israeli actress, direcor and screenwriter, RONIT ELKABETZ

In Israel, there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce. Only a rabbi can legitimize or dissolve a marriage… and both require the consent of the husband, who often has more power than the judges. Trapped in a loveless marriage for three years, Viviane Amsalem is determined to defy her husband and the authorities to win her freedom. Her husband’s intransigence, the unsparing eye of public opinion, and the ambiguous role of the judges put justice itself on trial.
