IZUN/MIZAN: A Film and Dialogue Series is a presentation of films focusing on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the creation of opportunities for interfaith dialogue and learning after each screening.
All too often, the contemporary conflicts between Israelis and Palestinians, and between Jews and Muslims, in the Middle East are reduced to simple caricatures; proposed solutions are often one-sided formulae; and the communities that have a vital stake in the issues are often polarized. IZUN/MIZAN is born of the conviction that the medium of film is particularly well-suited to unearthing many layers of complexity and bringing viewers to new vantage points in a short period of time.
IZUN/MIZAN will offer a selection of carefully curated films preceded by an introduction with study questions. The films presented in this series will be chosen for their artistic quality, for their ability to deepen the participants’ understanding of the complexity of the middle-east conflict in Israel and function as segues into inclusive dialogue in the post-film viewing experience.
FEB. 28: Two Sided Story
MAR. 14: Arab Labor - "Memorial"
APRIL 23: The Human Turbine
All screenings are free. Dinner will be served.
