Jewish Film Festival: TAHARA

Carrie and Hannah have been best friends since childhood. When their former Hebrew school classmate unexpectedly commits suicide, the girls attend the funeral together, as well as the “teen talk-back” session designed to help them process their grief through their Jewish faith. Even with their teacher’s guidance, with so many memories to reconcile and dramas to unpack, the teens spend the afternoon just as confused, misguided, and stuck in their own heads as ever. A day in the life of high school students, TAHARA is both a small independent film directed and written by two gifted young filmmakers and an extraordinary breakthrough in Jewish representation in cinema.
