Set against the backdrop of a religiously tense Jerusalem, Red Cow follows 16-year-old Benny as she experiences her sexual awakening. Gently photographed using a plethora of natural light, this sensual tale develops bathed in twilight as Benny and her lover hide their forbidden relationship from her father. Offering priceless insight into a Jewish community that awaits messiah, and unquestionably forbids homosexuality, this familiar story tackles topics of belonging and identity.

Feature running time: 90 mins
