|We are thrilled to kick off our eighth annual Israeli Film Series at the Miami Beach JCC tonight with a special under the stars presentation of MJFF 2022 Official Selection The Raft, the new coming-of-age family film from the director of Maktub, one of Israel’s biggest box office sensations. The event will take place at 7:30pm at the Miami Beach JCC and is open to the public!
Casting off on a daring adventure of a lifetime, a diehard group of young Israeli soccer fans sets sail for Cyprus, putting their friendship and seafaring skills to the test. When a security threat prompts Israel to shift its championship game to the nearby island, four teens construct a raft to cross the Mediterranean. Inspired by the fabled Kon-Tiki quest, the audacious adolescents—three boys and a girl—defy their parents and the perils of the voyage, determined not to miss the big match.
