About the event
Directed by Evgeny Ruman
Sponsored by Julie and Richard Jaffe
With a perfect mix of poignancy, levity, and heart, GOLDEN VOICES offers an intimate glimpse into the experience of Soviet Jews during the single largest wave of immigration in Israel’s history. GPJFF is thrilled to present alumnus director Evgeny Ruman’s (Igor and the Cranes’ Journey) latest film.
Upon the collapse of the Soviet Union, Raya (Maria Belkin) and Victor Frenkel (Vladimir Friedman), famed for dubbing the finest films of the 20th century for Soviet audiences, make aliyah and begin their life anew in Israel. Realizing their unique brand has no market in the holy land, they are forced to use their talents in unexpected ways, leading them to wildly absurd predicaments and an adventure of a lifetime. Nominated for four Ophir Awards (Israeli Academy Awards)!
Includes pre-recorded virtual interview with star Vladimir Friedman!
