Follow the Honey


When lapsed Jew and former cardiologist Harry (James Caan) suddenly decides to spend his retirement as a pig farmer in Nazareth, Israel, the move deeply shocks his family and his new neighbors. Back in New York, Harry’s ex-wife Monica (Rosanna Arquette) is trying to manage the lives of their adult children, Annabelle and David (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), as well as her own.

Adapted from director Amanda Sthers’ critically acclaimed novel, Les Terres Saintes, Holy Lands is a universal story about love, family, loss, and tolerance, told with incredible humor and heart by a stellar ensemble cast.

This event is free and open to the public.
