The McCall Film Society presents “ Blush”, Wednesday, February 8th at 7 pm at the Alpine Playhouse, 1210 Roosevelt Ave., McCall. “Blush” is the story of young women who explore their sexuality on the backdrop of the social and political fabric in Israel. This is a full length adaption of her short film which was screened at Sundance Film Festival.

The director/ writer Michael Vinik based in Israel tells the story of 17-year-old Naama who spends most of her free time drinking and partying in the hopes of escaping from her parents’ constant bickering, worsened by the recent disappearance of her AWOL soldier sister. When a free-spirited new girl shows up at school, Naama falls deeply in love for the first time and the intensity of the experience at once confuses her and gives her life new meaning. Jonathan Holland of the Hollywood Report says Blush brings “A freshness of observation and a sparky sense of wonder about its protagonists means that Michael Vinik’s debut feature retains the keen edge of authentic experience.”

Advanced tickets will be available at the McCall Public Library, starting Thursday, February 2nd until 3 pm Wednesday, the day of the show. Additional tickets will be available at the door. All tickets are free.
