The Farewell Party is a compassionate and surprisingly funny story about residents at a Jewish retirement home who help their terminally ill friend by constructing a euthanasia device. When rumors of their activity begin to spread, and more and more people ask for their help, the group is suddenly faced with a life and death dilemma. Winner of 4 Ophir Awards (the Israeli Academy Awards®), The Farewell Party pits the ethics of assisted suicide against the right to die with dignity. Film critic Colin Covert of the Star Tribune says, “I can’t recall any film ever making me laugh and cry in complete comic and dramatic balance like The Farewell Party.” [2014, Israel, Runtime: 90 min, Hebrew with English subtitles]
