Trezoros: The Lost Jews of Kastoria

Loading...
"Using never-before-seen pre-war archival footage and first-person testimonies, TREZOROS: THE LOST JEWS OF KASTORIA chronicles the Jewish life and culture of Kastoria, a picturesque lakeside village in the mountains of Northwestern Greece, near the Albania border. Here, Jews and Greek Orthodox Christians lived together in harmony for more than two millennia until World War II, when this long and rich history would be wiped out in the blink of an eye. TREZOROS (the Ladino/Judeo-Spanish term of endearment meaning “Treasures”) takes us from the joyful innocence of the pre-war years through the heartbreaking struggles of the Holocaust, to a unique place in time and history of a Greek Jewish culture lost forever." -- Container.

Vita Activa: The Spirit of Hannah Arendt

Loading...
"The German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt caused an uproar in the 1960s by coining the subversive concept of the "Banality of Evil" when referring to the trial of Adolph Eichmann, which she covered for the New Yorker magazine. Her private life was no less controversial thanks to her early love affair with the renowned German philosopher and Nazi supporter Martin Heidegger. This thought provoking and spirited documentary, with its abundance of archival materials, offers an intimate portrait of the whole of Arendt's life, traveling to places where she lived, worked, loved, and was betrayed, as she wrote about the open wounds of modern times." - Zeitgeist Films website.

Slingshot Hip Hop

Loading...
Hip hop has always had a school that attempts to voice frustrations about the African-American condition in the United States. That spirit of resistance animates the rappers profiled in this film: Palestinian hip hop groups DAM (from Lydd or Lod), PR (Gaza), along with young women Abeer (Lydd), and duo Arapeyat (Akka or Acre), who are also harassed for being independent females performing on stage. DAM formed as clueless teenagers, spent time spouting rap clichés, but in the wake of the second Intifada their lyrics became politicized--inspiring a hip hop movement across the Palestinian territories. These artists rap about friends killed in attacks, strafed buildings, rubble, fields stripped of every tree, and rage at separation walls and checkpoints. As Palestinian citizens living in [...]
