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 [...]

The Trial of Adolf Eichmann

Loading...
Adolph Eichmann, who devised the "Final Solution," the attempt to exterminate the Jews, was the most hated of the Nazis. His 1961 trial, held in an Israeli courtroom and broadcast around the globe, was a benchmark event in the historiography of the Holocaust, especially in Israel where the trial proved a watershed experience for survivors and citizens of the new Jewish state. Employing new video and broadcast technologies, the trial was also a milestone in media and journalism coverage. This absorbing, comprehensive new documentary features detailed accounts of Eichmann's capture, the drama in the courtroom and behind the scenes, and reactions to the trial from around the world (as concentration camp survivors broke down giving their evidence, Eichmann sat impassive & protesting his [...]

Israel-Palestine: Two Peoples, Two States for One Peace

Loading...
The "Geneva Initiative" was launched by Prof. Alexis Keller from Geneva. In 2002, he succeeded in bringing Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table in order to continue discussions on a peaceful solution of the conflict where they had been left by Bill Clinton in the late1990s. For the following two years, the two delegations met in Geneva, Israel, Palestine and London to discuss the conditions for a possible peace agreement. The Israeli delegation was led by Yossi Beilin, former Israeli Justice Minister in the Rabin government. The Palestinian delegation was led by Yasser Abed Rabbo, former Information Minister of the Palestinian Authority and member of the PLO executive committee. Neither group had a mandate from their governments, they were speaking for themselves. [...]

The Conscience of a Warrior Nation

Loading...
A small core of reservist in the Israeli army have refused to serve in Gaza and the West Bank, on moral grounds. They have subjected themselves to jail terms and harsh recriminations. The "refusers" are not pacifists, or cowards; they are willing to serve their country anywhere else but in the occupied territories. One of the organizers, Lieutenant Zonsheine, commended for bravery on the Lebanese front, speaks of his experiences in Ramallah, Hebron and Yenin which polarized him. He saw how searching for Palestinian terrorists in densely populated areas was creating havoc for young and old. With other reservists he published "The Fighters Letter" announcing that they would no longer serve in territories taken by Israel in the 67 war. The group is now five hundred strong, including one [...]

Black Israel

Loading...
This engaging film is a vibrant portrait of pluralistic 21st-century Jewish identities across the globe. It documents Africans and African-Americans who live in Israel and practice Judaism there. Africans from Nigeria, Togo, the Congo, Zaire, Lagos and Ethiopia have emigrated to Israel to work or to study Judaism. They were unable to study their religion at home since there was no one to teach them. In the Negev desert, several thousand black Americans who fled the urban slums in the 1960s have formed an independent community where they practice their own version of the Hebraic religion under the law of their leader Carter Ben Ami. Although they have been denied citizenship in Israel, they enjoy friendly relations with Israelis and believe Israel is "the kingdom of Paradise on Earth. [...]

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 [...]

Living for Tomorrow

Loading...
This film is a moving tribute to the idealistic young women who settled the Israel Kibbutz in the early days of the movement. Made by the granddaughter of one of the pioneers, it brings to life the courage required to leave everything familiar behind and adapt to the rigors of desert life as well as the demands of kibbutz ideology. The filmmaker interweaves archival footage with interviews and memoirs of the survivors of these difficult times. Her grandmother and other women in their 80s and 90s recall the rigid rules and inequities of kibbutz society. They attempt to peel away the layers of idealism and collective mythology as they bring those stories up-to-date with the wisdom and hindsight they have now. Many women experienced difficulty leaving their European homes and families f [...]
