God of the Piano

Directed by Itay Tal

Israel | 80 minutes | 2019

Hebrew with English subtitles

For Anat, the scion of a distinguished musical family, music is all she has. Having never been able to satisfy her father's high musical standards, she rests her hopes on the child she's about to give birth to. But when her baby is born deaf, she uses extreme measures to make sure her son becomes the composer of her dreams. Written as a moral parable and nominated for the Best Israeli Feature Prize at the Jerusalem Film Festival, God of the Piano tells the story of a mother (Naama Preis, Winner of the Best Actress Award at the Jerusalem Film Festival) whose obsessive behavior and great expectations threaten to crush her child, just as she was once crushed.
