MIKVEH

a cleansing ceremony for Jewish brides reinterpreted by two married men

MIKVEH

2016 | HD | TRT: 5:30

In this reinterpretation of the mikveh - a purifying ritual bath performed by Jewish brides about to marry - the filmmaker and his husband's immersions are disrupted by a government who refuses to recognize their marriage. While the couple is required, again and again, to prove their relationship legally exists, the mikveh they share helps them overcome unforgiving bureaucracies and return to what truly matters.
