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 Attack
February 12 * 7pm

Dr. Amin Jaafari is an assimilated Arab surgeon who seems to have it all with a promising career with honors among the Israelis in Tel Aviv. That all changes after a devastating terrorist suicide bombing and his beloved wife, Siham, is found among the dead as the primary suspect. Although initially refusing to accept that as Shin Bet interrogates him, Amin comes to realize the allegations are true. Now, the ostracized Amin resolves to find out on his own why Siham had so strong a conviction that she kept secret from him. However, the answers prove hard to come by and the truths involved have a terrible pain of their own.
