Greener Pastures


Please Note: this film is showing at the Orlando Science Center Digital Adventure Theater, which does not have concessions. 

Nominated for 12 Israeli Oscars including Best Film, Actor, and Director!

A retired widower is forced to reexamine his past and embrace his future in this charming comedy that was nominated for 12 Israeli Ophir Awards, including for Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Actor. Boasting a dream cast of talent, including icons of Israeli comedy like Shlomo Bar-Aba (Footnote) and Doval’e Glickman (ShtiselShoelaces), this is a wryly comic story about life, moving on and finding redemption. Dov, a widower who begrudgingly resides in a nursing home, dreams of buying back his old house where he raised his family. Since his pension fell through, Dov’s finances are thin which he entirely blames on the bureaucracy of the state. When he discovers that almost all the residents in the facility partake of medical marijuana to help with their aches and pains, he realizes that weed can be his salvation—selling it, not smoking it. Irresistible, funny, and full of hilarious moments, GREENER PASTURES is the perfect opener for this year’s festival!
