The Stone Flower (2007): UK film premiere
Director Sarit Haymian: Hebrew
and Farsi with English subtitles
Gole sangam means ‘stone flower’ in
Farsi. This documentary follows two elderly Jewish women, who
immigrated from Iran to Israel 50 years ago and currently live
in a deprived area. Married in their teens, they moved from the
domineering homes of their parents to those of their husbands.
Now, aged 70, they reflect on the choices they have made, and
those they were forced to make.
Anxious to learn from their experiences, Sarit, the director,
a 30 year- old unmarried Israeli-born Iranian, is trying to map
out a future for herself. The film raises questions about love,
family, femininity and dreams. The Stone flower has been shown
at Festivals in the USA and Greece as well as Israel.
After the screening the audience is encouraged to contribute their
thoughts and experiences.
