Other Israel Film Festival

(Nov. 2-9) — The Other Israel Film Festival presents cinema about minority populations in Israel, with a focus on Arab/Palestinian citizens, who make up twenty percent of Israel’s population.

Today's schedule:

10:00am — "In Between": Two Palestinian women share an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv. A stylish criminal lawyer with a wicked wit, Laila sheds her professional persona and releases any inhibitions in the city’s underground club scene. Her more subdued lesbian roommate Salma left her conservative Christian home and floats from job-to-job, working primarily as a bartender and DJ. They are joined by Nur, a religious Muslim, who moves into the apartment while studying at the local university. Her fiancé refuses to understand why she prefers to study and work over establishing their home. Together, the roommates  search for ways to live in the space in between their desired modern lifestyles and the pressures from their traditional communities. Screening followed by Q&A with the director, Maysaloun Hamoud, and MK Merav Michaeli

6:30pm — New Generations Dinner: Join the New Israel Fund’s New Generations, JCC 20s + 30s, and other young leadership groups for Shabbat dinner, drinks, and short films, accompanied by an intimate conversation with guest filmmakers. 3 short films for 3 courses. Event nourished by One Table. Advance registration required. Drinks will take place in Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium at 6:30 then dinner will be served at 7 PM. During dinner, three films from the Other Israel Film Festival will be shown.
