A Match Made in Heaven

Directed by Ronnie Kay

Israel | 75 minutes | 2014

Hebrew with English subtitles

A Match Made in Heaven is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at the process of finding a mate for ultra-orthodox people. The film’s narrative, which follows a series of characters over their journey to find a partnership, and following that, hopefully, love, also explores the personal and family pressures that inevitably also play a role in the search these men and women go through. Through personal stories, comments and journeys of its subjects, the film gives the audience a window into what these communities really believe about marriage. It also shines a light on the rituals and customs that, from an outsider’s perspective, seem restrictive and dated. At a time when marriage in the modern, secular world is in decline, this film asks: why do Haredi relationships last? And how does it work?
