Avanti Popolo

Avanti Popolo

In this compelling and comical saga, two Egyptian soldiers are stranded in the Sinai Desert at the end of the Six-Day War in 1967. Their journey in search of safety and precious water is a testament to human solidarity and the absurdity of war. Exquisitely restored for the film’s 30th anniversary, Avanti Popolo has long been regarded as one of the most important films in the history of Israeli cinema.

The 90 Minute War

The 90 Minute War

In this sharp-edged political mockumentary, a century of intractable conflict between Israel and Palestine is going to be settled once and for all . . . on the soccer field. The region’s leaders, in a desperate attempt, have agreed that one 90-minute match will determine the fate of two peoples: Winner gets to stay, loser goes away. Moshe Ivgy and Norman Issa (Arab Labor) star in a dark satire that scores some serious points.

Rabbi Wolff: A Gentleman Before God

Rabbi Wolff: A Gentleman Before God

Willy Wolff escaped the Nazis, became a renowned British journalist and didn’t go to rabbinical school till he was in his 50s. Now in his 80s, he leads two communities in Germany and still finds time for yoga, learning Russian and enjoying the racetrack. We go behind the scenes to see the beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking life of a deeply religious man who is rarely seen without a twinkle in his eye.

Stranger in Paradise

Stranger in Paradise

This timely fiction/documentary hybrid plays with our minds as a European lectures, then interrogates refugees from Africa and the Middle East who are seeking asylum. He tells them they are not wanted, then that they deserve refugee status, then asks specific questions to weed out those who do not qualify. First-time helmer Guido Hendrikx uses innovative and provocative techniques to make us share in the emotions of the most powerless people in the world.
