Israel 2017 105 mins. In Hebrew

Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon, the writers and stars of several Israeli TV mega-hits, play partners in crime in this hilarious, politically incorrect caper. Maktub means fate, and the destiny of these two small-time enforcers for a Jerusalem mob irrevocably changes when they survive a suicide bombing and set to fulfilling the wishes of those who leave notes at the Wailing Wall. While carrying out their dubious plans, they find themselves dealing with their own secrets and wishes. In Hebrew with English subtitles.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
