HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER

DIRECTOR: Eran Riklis - ISRAEL

Riklis’ comic and ultimately moving film starts in Jerusalem, when the unclaimed body of a woman killed by a suicide bomber turns out to be that of a foreign worker at a prominent local bakery. Worried that all the press coverage might damage the reputation of her business, the owner theatrically insists on memorializing the woman and instructs her personnel officer to escort the body back to Romania for a dignified funeral. But who was this woman, and why was she in Jerusalem? As a surreal journey to the backwaters of Romania unfolds, the personnel officer soon learns more than he ever bargained for about the woman’s life, bureaucracy, and, ultimately, about the “human resources” he himself possesses. (103 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Volcano Junction (99), The Syrian Bride (04), The Lemon Tree (08).

Winner of five Israeli Academy Film Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, and this year’s Israeli submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

In Hebrew, English, and Romanian.

Sponsored by the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest.
