“The Narrow Bridge” (Promotional still)

Director Esther Takac has worked as a trauma psychologist with bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families in a Jerusalem hospital for nine years. In “The Narrow Bridge,” she profiles four individuals—two men and two women, from Israeli and Palestinian families—who have lost a child or parent in the prolonged conflict. Despite considerable political and social resistance, and in the face of unspeakable loss, Bushra, Rami, Meytal, and Bassam work to transform their grief into reconciliation, summoning untold courage to build bridges of friendship that might one day lead to peace. The film includes an inspiring appearance by Leonard Cohen.

Screening with “Nool”/”נול”

In May Grosman’s award-winning animated short “Nool,” a young black macaque new to a caged life finds her world shattered in an Israeli zoo. What she first thinks are fireworks dancing in the sky turn out to be something else entirely. When Nool slips out of her cage for a closer look, the human war hits too close to home, and her life changes forever in one fateful moment.

Followed by a pre-recorded conversation with filmmaker Esther Takac (“The Narrow Bridge”) and Steve Watson, senior pastor at Reservoir Church in Cambridge, moderated by Jeremy Burton, CEO of JCRC of Greater Boston.
