January 31: Documentary:  90’  -  "A PRECIOUS LIFE"

Each must face their most profound biases as they inch towards a possible friendship in an impossible reality."

 2010 Ophir Award (the Israeli Academy Award®) for Best Documentary, Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival and numerous other nominations

 Co-sponsored by the Consulate General of Israel and the International House.

 

February 14:  Feature film: 90’  -  "A MATTER OF SIZE"

"A Matter of Size is an Israeli comedy (yes, comedy!) like nothing you've seen before, a hilarious and heart-warming tale about a coming out of a different kind: four overweight guys who learn to love themselves through the Japanese sport of sumo wrestling."

 Winner of 3 Israeli Academy Awards, winner of 10 Film Festival Audience Awards

Co-sponsored by the Consulate General of Israel and the International House.

April 3,  Documentary   60’  -  “OUR SUMMER IN TEHERAN”

Jewish American filmmaker Justine Shapiro and her 6 year-old son Mateo spend the summer with three middle-class families in Tehran, Iran transcending overt politics in favor of subtle, human, and often humorous moments. Over the course of three months, Shapiro and her son experience the daily life of three middle class families from very different backgrounds in Tehran. Our Summer in Tehran goes behind the traditional mainstream media headlines and explores a fascinating, yet strikingly familiar home of the "enemy."

Discussant is Academy Award nominated, Emmy award-winning feature

documentary filmmaker Justine Shapiro.

 

May 1, 2012    80’  -  "CHECKPOINT"

The West Bank and Gaza Strip have been under Israeli military control since 1967. Today, over three million Palestinians live under Israeli occupation. When traveling from one village or city to another to go to work, to visit relatives, or to get medical treatment, they must pass through Israeli checkpoints. These checkpoints, essentially the first points of contact between the two people, have an enormous significance in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. From 2001-2003, Director Yoav Shamir filmed at these checkpoints. A chilling look at the destructive impact of the occupation on both societies.

Discussant is Tal Palter a former member of Israeli Self-Defense Forces.

Documentary won five awards at various film festivals, including Best International Documentary at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, best feature-length documentary at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam and the Golden Gate Award for Documentary Feature at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the International House.
