Forever Pure

Loading...
"Beitar Jerusalem F.C. is the most popular and controversial football team in Israel, the only club in the Premier League never to sign an Arab player. Mid-way through the 2012-13 season, a secretive transfer deal by the owner, Russian-Israeli oligarch Arcadi Gaydamak, brought two Muslim players from Chechnya. The deal inspired the most racist campaign in Israeli sport that sent the club spiralling out of control. One season in a life of this famed club is a story of Israeli society, personal identity, politics, money and a window into how racism is destroying a team and society from within"--Container.

Arabic Movie

Loading...
So many Israelis still wax nostalgic about that old Friday afternoon ritual, back in the times when television had just one channel. Everyone would watch the Arab movie of the week, but did anybody ever wonder how Israel's official TV station was able to transcend hostile boundaries to obtain these films, and why it insisted on showing movies made by "the enemy"? The Arabic-language movie from Egypt let some of us escape back to our original homeland, and let others peek out from our "villa in the jungle" and catch a glimpse of our neighbors across the border. But most of us didn't really want to see the people whose culture, anguish, and aspirations were reflected on our screens. "Arab Movie" brings us the stars and the songs, the convoluted plots, and that fleeting moment when we s [...]

Take Omri, for Example

Loading...
This is a rare opportunity to look into the closed society of children, as they behave towards one another oblivious of the camera. The focus is a fifth grade class in Jerusalem. Here we meet Omri, a pudgy and awkward eleven-year-old. He clearly has not made friends. The popular children in the class follow the leadership of Yatan, a verbally aggressive, athletic, and good looking kid. To be his friend is to be in the "in group", and Omri never makes it. Reminiscent of The Lord of the Flies, this documentary captures the cruelty of children and the vulnerability of those who don t fit in. Even the teachers side with the stronger members of the class and offer no protection to the victimized child. This short film has already provoked intense discussion in classrooms in Israel and in [...]
