COMING TO ABQ!

We're bringing ON THE MAP to Albuquerque for a special screening in association with the Jewish Community Center of Greater ABQ. If you missed seeing it in Santa Fe, it's another chance to see this award winning film. It's all part of an Israel Independence Day celebration at the JCC.

It was 1977, stunned by the murder of its athletes at the Munich Olympics, demoralized by the Yom Kippur War, and reeling from Entebbe, Israel's underdog basketball team faced the formidable Soviet Union Red Army Moscow team in the European Championships. ... more ...

IN BETWEEN

"... engrossing ..."
Variety

SOLD OUT
Maysaloun Hamoud’s debut film, IN BETWEEN is an absorbing tale of three Arab Israeli women, each living a split life in secular Tel Aviv. Their relationships reveal the tension between modernity and the more traditional society from which they come and their struggles to be true to themselves. As a female Arab Israeli, Maysaloun infuses a natural authenticity into the characters. IN BETWEEN had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and took home the award for BEST FILM at the San Sebastian International Film Festival.

Exodus Pass

EXODUS:
The Ethiopian Journey

A remarkable story with
film, lunch and talk

SOLD OUT
The story of Ethiopian Jewry and the mass immigration to Israel is one of heroism, secrecy, danger, and challenges. With the determination and planning of the Israeli and American governments, world Jewish organizations, and Jewish Ethiopian activists, the vast majority of Ethiopia’s Jewish community was brought to Israel. EXODUS: THE ETHIOPIAN JOURNEY fills in the canvas of this most extraordinary story with the regional premiere of RED LEAVES, a talk (A VIEW FROM WITHIN) by Avishai Mekonen who at ten years of age made the journey from Ethiopia to Israel, and a lunch featuring Ethiopian dishes. Attend the film and/or talk and stay for the optional lunch.

RED LEAVES
 

"... beautifully acted ..."
Jerusalem Post

SOLD OUT
Tradition clashes with modernity in Bazi Gete’s RED LEAVES. Winner of the Jerusalem Film Festival’s award for BEST DEBUT FILM, the story follows Meseganio Tadela, an Ethiopian émigré to Israel and patriarch of his family. Meseganio grew up in a world a universe away, one that clung to Jewish traditions over 2,000 years old. Now with his children growing up in a secular society and a modern world he doesn’t understand, Meseganio is adrift. The promise of the “Promised Land” is out of reach.
