When a smiley, carefree Ukrainian woman arranges for her younger sister to marry an Israeli man and start her life anew, trepidation fills the room for the soon-to-be bride. Is this arranged marriage a blessing in disguise or a disaster waiting to happen? VALERIA IS GETTING MARRIED has astounded audiences and critics across the globe with its tense setting, intelligent writing, and top-notch performances from its minimal cast. Writer/director Michal Vinik has created a powerful tale of two women willing to decide for themselves and not fall victim to society’s demands. 

Join us at The Weitzman for Philadelphia Jewish Film and Media’s (PJFM) screening of VALERIA IS GETTING MARRIED in honor of International Women’s Day.
