Action, drama, comedy. Conflicts, dialogs, tragedies. Laughter, hatred, love. The attributes of a good film are also that of the day-to-day life in Israel.
In 2008, the Israeli cinema woke up from a 20-year-long nap and for the past 6 years, 6 Israeli films were nominated for an Oscar. Please join me for the Israeli Film Series, a screening of some of the best, new-released Israeli films. The popcorn is my treat.

The 2013 film tells the story of the complex relationship between an Israeli Secret Service officer and his teenage Palestinian informant. Shuttling back and forth between conflicting points of view, the film is a raw portrayal of characters torn apart by competing loyalties and impossible moral dilemmas, giving an unparalleled glimpse into the dark and fascinating world of human intelligence.
