NOBLE INTENTIONS: HONORING SASSON GABAY
Stockholm – US Première
When a renowned economist is found dead in his bed, his friends decide to hide his death for five days, enough time to allow him to win the coveted Nobel Prize in Economics. Determined to retain some integrity for their friend, while also gaining, by proxy, some notoriety for themselves, the plan threatens to unravel in a nail-biting, hysterical, thoughtful, not-to-be missed popular series with an all-star cast: Sasson Gabay (THE BAND’S VISIT), Doval’e Glickman, Gidi Gov, and Tikva Dayan.
Followed by Q&A with Sasson Gabay, 2019 Ronit Elkabetz A”H Pomegranate Award recipient.
