Netanyahu isn’t Israel’s only visitor to the United States this month. Philadelphia’s annual Israeli Film Festival opens its 19th season this Saturday with The Farewell Party, a dark comedy featuring many of Israel’s top actors. The film is one of a dozen being screened at locations across the city March 7-29, 2015, showcasing the best in Israeli cinema. Lead actor Levana Finkelstein will join audiences at the International House for post-screening talks backs of The Farewell Party.
