    • Synopsis
    • 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. Starring Nelly Tagar (last seen in the festival hit "Zero Motivation"), Joy Rieger ("Greenhouse"), Doron Tavory ("Lemon Tree") and Evgenia Dodina (2016 Cannes selection "One Week and a Day"). Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Avi Nesher ("The Secrets," "The Matchmaker").
