Past Life

Final Day Thursday
“Heightened by a connection to a pervasive Israeli reality not often found on film, PAST LIFE is best at conjuring that existential dread, the anger and fear that comes from not knowing exactly what your parents’ actions were, what moral norms they might have transgressed just to survive and, more than that, not being sure you even want to know. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“A page-turner that transforms into a clarion call. – Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times

Inspired by true events, PAST LIFE tracks the daring 1977 trans-European odyssey of two sisters – one an introverted ambitious classical music composer, and the other a combative liberal magazine editor. As they try to unravel a disturbing wartime mystery that has cast a foreboding shadow on their entire lives, they realize that freedom from the shackles of the past requires painful sacrifices, as does the struggle to discover one’s unique voice.
