Award-winning, touching new film opens at Mary D. Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (August 31, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the touching new film “The Cakemaker” Sept. 7-12 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“The Cakemaker” has garnered awards and praise from audiences and critics in prestigious film festivals and premieres all around the world.
A German pastry maker travels to Jerusalem in search for the wife and son of his dead lover.
Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who has frequent business visits in Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking for answers regarding his death.
Under a fabricated identity, Thomas infiltrates into the life of Anat, his lover’s newly widowed wife, who owns a small Café in downtown Jerusalem. Thomas starts to work for her and create German cakes and cookies that bring life into her Café. Thomas finds himself involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.
