Los Angeles, CA – May 21, 2019 – The Israeli film festival favorite, ‘MADAM YANKELOVA’S FINE LITERATURE CLUB’ will screen for a week at the Laemmle Town Center 5 in Encino this June.
To kick off the film’s weekly run, writer-director Guilhad Emilio Schenker will participate in a special Q&A session for opening night on Friday, June 21st.
“Of all the wild wonderful films I’ve seen at Fantastic Fest this year, my favorite is ‘MADAM YANKELOVA’S FINE LITERATURE CLUB’, from its opening image of dark skies and its vivacious score of smirking strings,” wrote RogerEbert.com.
Written by Schneker and Yossi Meiri (A Wonderful Day), Madam Yankelova’s Fine Literature Club is abedtime story for the broken hearted, the tenderly twisted and the fed-up feminist. What is going on behind the closed doors of the women-only secret club? First Rule: The lady with the best looking date wins. Second Rule: 100 wins turns a lady into a lordess. Third Rule: love is prohibited. So when Sophie falls in love with a mysterious man, she must choose between true love and her loyalty to the club.
“The script by Guilhad Emilio Schenker and Yossi Meiri is alive with macabre humor, allowing us to cackle at a close-up of hot dogs and guffaw at the devilish antics of these deadly women,” wrote SyFy, adding the “unlikely romance at the heart of this deliciously deranged film”.
Starring Alex Ansky (Orchestra of Exiles), Anita Buckshtein (Game of Thrones), Razia Israeli (Schindler’s List), award-winning Hana Laslo (Free Zone, Plasticine), Keren Mor (series: Parashat Ha-Shavua, Yom Haem), Yiftach Klein (Noodle, 7 Days in Entebbe) and Lea Koenig (Shitsel series, Kadosh). MADAM YANKELOVA’S FINE LITERATURE CLUB has received several accolades, including, Best Costume Design and Best Makeup at the Israeli Film Academy, alongside nominations of six Ophir Awards and the Golden Zenith at the Montréal World Film Festival.
MADAM YANKELOVA’S FINE LITERATURE CLUB will screen for one week only at Encino’s Laemmle Town Center 5 (17200 Ventura Blvd #121, Encino, CA 91316). Please visit https://www.laemmle.com/films/45798 for more information.
