Israeli Films Screen at JCC Indy

Etay Furman, the Israeli Community Shaliach for the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis is hosting a series of Israeli films followed with discussion in the Laikin Auditorium at the JCC Indianapolis, 6701 Hoover Road, Indianapolis.

Screenings of the films (which have English subtitles) begin at 7 p.m.; they're free and open to the public.

Next up on 12 March is "Beaufort", which takes place in 2000, the year Israel withdrew from the Israeli Security Zone in southern Lebanon. It chronicles the daily routine of a group of soldiers positioned at the 12th century Crusader stronghold of Beaufort Castle: their feelings and their fears, and explores their moral dilemmas in the days preceding the withdrawal and end of the 18-year South Lebanon conflict. The movie was nominated for an Oscar in the Foreign Movie category in 2008, and the director, Joseph Cedar, won Best Director in 2007 at the Berlin Festival.

Questions? Contact Etay Furman, 317:726-5450, ext. 525.
