The Annual Tucson International Jewish Film Festival Presents:

Dear God A devout woman visits Jerusalem’s Western Wall each day, hoping that someone will hear her prayers. Little does she know, her supplications are being observed by someone who wants to make her hopes and dreams come true.

Vice Versa (Haahayot Cahana) Based on the controversial novel by Yehoshua Greenberg (and directed by his brother, Amichai), Vice Versa tells the story of an unlikely romance between a devout Yeshiva scholar and his terminally ill student. At times both tender and shocking, their intimate love story transcends the rules of religion, society, and faith.
