Set in Tel Aviv in 1989, SNAILS IN THE RAIN follows Boaz, a linguistics student committed to his loving girlfriend. But Boaz soon questions his life when he begins receiving a series of letters from another man. They expose the inner world of their author, who is deeply closeted — and knows plenty about him, including Boaz’s past attraction to other men. The film will screen Thursday, July 31st at the Castro Theater in San Francisco; Sunday, August 3rd at the California Theater in Berkeley; and Sunday, August 10th at the Rafael Film Center in San Rafael.
