On the face of it, young yeshiva butcher Moti and his little sister’s best friend Nehami are the perfect match – they share the same values, have known each other for years, and most importantly, they are in love. There is just one small problem: Moti is Ashkenazi and Nehami is Sephardi, and in the ultra-Orthodox city in which they live, such a match is strictly prohibited. Going against the wishes of his meddling parents and nosy matchmaker, Moti comes up with a genius if risky plan to marry Nehami. Inspired by classic Bourekas comedies, Matchmaking is a sharp, hilarious critique of the business of love and marriage in the Haredi community.
DAVAR is delighted to be showing Shadow of the Day and Matchmaking in conjunction with UK Jewish Film Festival 2023
