Chicago Film Festival on WTTW11: CAMPFIRE on Thursday September 4 at 9:55pm
our 50th Anniversary this October 9-23, the Chicago International Film
Festival is proud to partner with WTTW11 to present a different film
each month from our exciting and diverse history. For the past five
decades the Festival has introduced Chicago audiences to new directors,
new voices and new visions from around the world. From award winners and
audience favorites, to first films by acclaimed directors, this series
showcases the outstanding programming that has defined the Festival
Chicago International Film Festival 50th Anniversary presents:
The year is 1981.
Rachel Gerlik, a 42 year-old widowed mother of two beautiful teenage
daughters, wants to join the founding group of a new religious
settlement in the West Bank. The problem is that the settlement's
acceptance committee won't approve her unless she remarries and
demonstrates that she and her daughters can meet the group's religious
and ideological standards. When Tami, her youngest daughter, is accused
of seducing some boys from her youth movement, Rachel is forced to weigh
her allegiances. Only Yossi, a 50 year-old bachelor and the new man in
Rachel's life, can show Rachel that living as an outcast is not as bad
as it seems. Hebrew with English subtitles. 96 minutes.
In 2004, Campfire won the FIPRESCI Prize for Best Film at the 40th Chicago International Film Festival.
