FREE Movie:  Working Woman

Long-time feminist filmmaker, Michael Aviad, brings us a timely film that addresses sexual harassment in the workplace.  

Life at work becomes unbearable for Orna (Liron Ben Shlush).  Orna is the mother of three young children with a husband struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family Orna returns to the workplace, landing a job with a former army superior, Benny (Menashe Noy), who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink. When her world is finally shattered, she must pull herself together to fight, in her own way, for her job and a sense of self-worth.
