We are offering three Israeli films, one each in November, December, and January, each to be viewed at your leisure. Then we will come together on Zoom to discuss the featured film with our host, Emanuel Cohn, a prominent Israeli film lecturer, actor, and screenwriter. The discussion will include peeks behind the scenes and in-depth conversation as we explore the relationship between history, culture, and identity in each film.
Each film: $10.00 | All three: $18.00
A link will be sent to you to watch the film, a week before the appointed date, together with a second link to join the Sunday discussion on Zoom.
