6:30 SCREENING AND DISCUSSION: Blues by the Beach (2004)

Presented by Jerry Rudes, Founder and Director of the Avignon/New York Film Festival


In April 2003, filmmakers gathered at Mike’s Place, a live music bar by the beach in Tel Aviv. Their intentions were to create a documentary and show the world that there is more to the Middle East than seemingly endless war and terrorism. However, filming people having a good time comes to an abrupt end when harsh reality hits Mike’s Place and changes the course of the film.









This is a very, very important film. It ranks along with One Day in September as an actual, undeniable presentation of the unmitigated horror of terrorism. Terrorism is the directed, purposeful taking of innocent life for supposedly political purposes.  Innocent life is innocent life—at the World Trade Center or in Tel Aviv—its extinction is an act of bestiality. To which fact this film bluntly and incontestably testifies”       -David Mamet


Blues by the Beach received the “Best Documentary” Award at the 12th Avignon/NY Film Festival and the Conflict & Resolution Award at the Hamptons International Film Festival
