Flagstaff Premiere: The Cakemaker


Festival presents Flagstaff premiere
of ‘The Cakemaker’ Sept. 12

Award-winning, touching new film debuts in Flagstaff monthly film series

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Flagstaff premiere of “The Cakemaker” on Wednesday, Sept. 12 as part of the festival’s monthly Flagstaff Cinema Series. There will be one screening of the film at 7:00 p.m. at Harkins Flagstaff 16 Theatres.

“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.


“ ‘The Cakemaker’ believes in a love that neither nationality, sexual orientation nor religious belief can deter.” — Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“A fascinating love story.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

A representative from the NAU Philosophy Department and Philosophy in the Public Interest will lead a discussion following the film screening.

“The Cakemaker” will be shown at Harkins Flagstaff 16 Theatres on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members ($8 for full-time students), and will be available starting at 6:00 p.m. that day in the Harkins lobby.
