Israeli film focuses on healing



The Charlotte Film Society closes out its 2012 slate with Seven Minutes in Heaven (Sheva Dakot Be Gan Eden), an Israeli import set in Jerusalem. After a suicide bomber detonates himself on a crowded public bus, a woman named Galia (Reymond Amsalem) finds herself having barely survived the tragedy.


As she mourns the boyfriend who was killed in the act of terrorism and attempts to piece together her fragmented memory, she meets a stranger (Eldad Prives) determined to help her through the healing process.

$5-$8. Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m. Theatre Charlotte, 501 Queens Road. For more information, visit
