Ben (Luzer Twersky, “One of Us,” Netflix) is an orthodox Jew from Brooklyn, sent to save the once-mighty Jewish community in Alexandria, Egypt, by serving as the tenth man in the Pesach minyan. Soon he’s stranded in Egypt’s Sinai desert, where he meets Adel, (Hitham Omari, “Sand Storm,” BJFF 2016) a grumpy Bedouin who has lost his camel. The unlikely pair clashes — Adel is perplexed when Ben uses precious water for hand washing. But his exasperation transforms into a grudging respect for Ben and his mission. A road movie set in the Holy Land, “No Name Restaurant” shows that friendship, and hope, can come in many flavors.
Followed by a live in-person conversation with co-directors Stefan Sarazin, Peter Keller and lead actor Luzer Twersky, moderated by BJF artistic director Lisa Gossels.
