In Hana’s Last Day Ines Moldavsky tells the story of a girl that looks like her story: living a life she does not like, meeting men who are not worth and longing for a different life away from her country. She tells us the way she adapted part of her life to this film and the challenges to overcome.
Hana’s Last Day: Hana is a 31-years-old former Jewish orthodox girl, living in Jerusalem. She lost contact with her family since leaving the religious community, but her hopes of forgetting her past seem unattainable, as she is haunted by a dark family secret from her old life. Hana’s greatest dream is to obtain a European passport and emigrating from Israel. She works as a video editor for the news of a major Israeli channel, a job she deeply detests. Real news footage expressing the contemporary reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is interwoven with the plot, in the scenes at Hana’s workplace. As Hana’s wish of leaving Israel seems increasingly impossible, she drowns her sorrow in bingeeating attacks and casual Tinder sex. Hana is getting frantic and desperate, while the news show how the political situation in Israel getting worse. One day Hana decides to take a final, desperate attempt to take her life in her own hands, and of course it involves Tinder.
