The National Center for Jewish Film’s Jewishfilm.2015 – “The Zionist Idea”

May 3, 2015 $10.00 - $12.00 0

SNEAK PREVIEW – Event with Director

This ambitious exploration of one of the most influential political ideologies of the modern era details Zionism’s origins in the late-19th-century European shtetls through present day events. Resisting one-sided and simplistic historical interpretations, Oren Rudavsky (Hiding and Seeking) and Joseph Dorman (Sholem Aleichem) take a multifaceted approach to a polarizing subject, offering insightful, candid commentary from a range of Israeli and Palestinian thinkers, and a wealth of exceptional archival footage. Amid unceasing religious conflicts in the Middle East, it is crucial to better understand the history, meaning, and future of the movement. “Thoughtful and invaluable…a significant cinematic achievement.” –Hollywood Reporter
