Finding Hannah

World Premiere

Directed and written by legendary filmmaker Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File, The Entity), the touching drama Finding Hannah is set in Israel and reunites Hollywood stars Barry Newman (Vanishing Point) and Diane Muldaur (Star Trek), who featured in his Paramount film The Lawyer more than five decades ago. Eighty-year-old Isaac (Barry Newman) and his son Ryan (Jason Blicker) arrive in modern-era Israel on a quest to find Hannah Cohen, Isaac's long lost teenage love from the outbreak of WWII. They are aided in their quest by Zeeva (Sasha Knopf) a spunky Israeli tour guide and researcher. Though the name Hannah Cohen is a common Jewish name, Zeeva has determined that there are only three possible Hannah Cohens in the state of Israel that match the age and nationality of Isaac's Hannah Cohen. The trio meet Anat, (Diana Muldaur) the headmistress at a multicultural youth village, who welcomes them and offers the services of her passenger van to travel across the Nation of Israel to fulfill Isaac's odyssey. But their journey takes them through uncharted paths of both the Holy Land and the byways of the human heart.
