The Summer of Aviya by Eli Cohen, written by and starring Gila Almagor (1989, 96 min). The hit of the first Boston Jewish Film Festival, this film is based on the autobiography of leading Israeli actress Gila Almagor, who is also the film's writer, producer and star. Set in the newly formed state of Israel, the story follows ten-year-old Aviya, who has lived in orphanages most of her life. Aviya's mother, a brave World War II partisan and concentration camp survivor, walks the thin line between sanity and madness. Introduced by Gila Almogor. $4, $8.
