Due to an unexpected snowstorm and an issue with the Gershman Y’s auditorium heater last November, the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival (GPJFF) was unfortunately forced to postpone DOUBTFUL. We’re delighted to be bringing this incredible film to the city for its official Philadelphia premiere this month!

In this provocative, hard-hitting Israeli drama based on true events, a screenwriter and poet from Tel Aviv begins serving his court-ordained community service term by teaching filmmaking to a rowdy class of juvenile delinquents in Beersheba. Though he is reluctant at first, he soon forms a delicate friendship with one of his most volatile students.

Nominated for nine Ophir Awards (Israeli Academy Awards), DOUBTFUL is inspired by writer/director Eliran Elya’s own experiences working with at-risk youth. This powerful drama is sure to be talked about long after the credits roll!
