Working Woman

Israel | Drama | 93 min.


Director: Michael Aviad


Life at work becomes unbearable for Orna. Her boss appreciates and promotes her while making inappropriate advances, her husband struggles to keep his new restaurant afloat, and Orna becomes the main breadwinner for her family and their three children. When finally her world is shattered, she must pull herself together to fight, in her own way, for work and a sense of self-worth. 


“TIMELY AND POWERFUL.... The latest from Israeli director Aviad arrives at just the right cultural moment, being an insightful drama about sexual harassment in the workplace, and the power dynamics that trap women in an office with their abusers.... Ben-Shlush is riveting as a competent, capable woman coming apart under the constant, smothering stress of a situation she never thought she’d experience.”
