Carmel Jewish Film Festival Location - Congregation Beth Israel, Carmel Films - Shoelaces Date - March 21 - Saturday 7.00 pm - Film (ticket required) 8.30 pm - Wine and Dessert Reception (ticket required) About the Film Shoelaces tells the story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his special-needs son, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy. Reuben's kidneys are failing, and his son Gadi wants to donate one of his own kidneys to help save his father's life. However, the transplant committee objects to the procedure, claiming that Reuben, acting as Gadi's sole legal guardian, does not have the right to authorize such an invasive procedure. Gadi, who recently lost his mother, is afraid of losing his father as well. He feels he finally has the chance to do something meaningful; to become a man and stand on his own. He's furious with the committee's decision and sets out to fight for his right to save his father's life. Through the film's portrayal of a relationship full of love, rejection, and co-dependency, it manages to shed some light and question the importance of human life, human connection, and if life is even possible without either one of them.
