South Carolina’s Premier Showing , the debut of Golda’s Balcony, The Film, recreates 100 years of Jewish history with Tovah Feldshuh, in a one woman show, playing 45 different characters (including Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Holocaust survivors, Israeli soldiers and, of course, GOLDA MEIR herself), in one of the greatest acting performances of the last 50 years-now captured on film for all time.

About the Film
Translated from Hebrew, Shoelaces tells the story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his special-needs son, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy. Through the film’s portrayal of a relationship full of love, rejection and co-dependency, it manages to shed some light and question the importance of : human life, human connection and if life is even possible without either one of them.
