Written and directed by Rama Burshstein, Fill the Void focuses on life in haredi society in Tel Aviv — with inspiration from Jane Austen. An 18-year old girl is pressured into marrying her brother-in-law when her sister (his wife) dies in childbirth. Hadas Yaron won the Best Actress award at the 2012 Venice Film Festival for her starring role. Burshtein is the first orthodox woman to write and direct a film intended for wide distribution.
