In this award-winning movie, a devout 18-year-old Israeli girl is pressured to marry the husband of her late sister. Declaring her independence is not an option in Tel Aviv's Hasidic community, where religious law, tradition and the rabbi’s word are absolute.

The film won seven Ophir (Israeli Academy) Awards.

Starring Hadas Yaron (Libbi from Shtisel) - winner of Best Actress at 2012 Venice Film Festival for this role.

"Graceful, complex, and beautifully layered, Fill the Void offers a sympathetic portrait of an insulated culture by exploring universal themes." Rotten Tomatoes

"A delicate romance and a complex coming-of-age tale” SBS

“...exquisitely acted, radiantly shot, and delicately nuanced“ The Boston Globe
