On May 6, Studio 180 Co-Presents WAITING FOR SURKIN at TJFF
Studio 180 Theatre is delighted to be co-presenting Waiting for Surkin as part of this year’s Toronto Jewish Film Festival (TJFF). Join us at the Empress Walk Cinemas, May 6 at 8PM, for this comedic exploration of the theatrical impulse and all its attendant aspirations and neuroses. It’s a charming look at the life of an artist in a world that places little value on artistic pursuits – something every artist has had to deal with at one time or another.

More about the film
Fans of director Jonathan Paz’s The Galilee Eskimos (TJFF 2008) will welcome this latest film that lovingly portrays the Israeli kibbutz of a bygone era. Chanoch, a kibbutz theatre director, aspires to a life of artistic fame in Tel Aviv. He is convinced that his latest production of Two Kuni Lemel will so impress his old friend Surkin, now a famous actor, that Chanoch will be invited to direct a play for Habima, Israel’s National Theatre. But will Surkin prove to be as elusive as Godot? Will Chanoch’s ambition survive the twists that this endearing comedy throws at him?
