Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in United States
8th New York International Sephardic Film Festival



8th New York International Sephardic Film Festival
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Center for Jewish History  •  Ongoing
 
 
Award-winning films, premieres and works by emerging filmmakers present a diverse portrait of Sephardim.

Films to be screened are:

Mother V
(Shahar Rozen / Israel, 2001. Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles. 52 min.) Hana Vazana, a religious Moroccan Jewish woman in her 60s, leaves her small town to visit her son, Menahem, who has been charged with revealing state secrets and is locked up in solitary confinement. Along the way, she meets a young Bedouin who helps her learn the truth about her son and herself. Mother V makes its U.S. premiere at the Sephardic Film Festival.

Za'aka / Outcry
(Destau Damtou / Israel, 2003. Hebrew & Amharik with English subtitles, 30 min.) An official selection of the 2003 Toronto Film Festival, Za'aka tells the story of an Ethiopian youth in Israel whose arrest for an alleged shooting of a police officer leads to a chain of violent events. In his strikingly impressive directorial debut, Ethiopian-born Damtou sheds light on the cultural limbo in which Ethiopian immigrants often find themselves in today's Israeli society. Za'aka / Outcry makes its U.S. premiere at the Sephardic Film Festival.

The Bicycle
(Ronen Menachem / Israel, 2000. Hebrew, with English subtitles, 24 min.) Yemenite Israeli film student Ronen Menachem follows in the footsteps of Vittorio de Sica's classic The Bicycle Thief. Here too, a father resorts to bicycle theft for the sake of his son. The Bicycle makes its NY premiere at the Sephardic Film Festival.

There are multiple screenings for these films and ticket reservations required.
