Available HERE or at the box office.
Join the Asheville JCC for the Israeli Film Series. Presenting a film and discussion.
Family secrets, lies, high drama and generations of contemporary history unspool in this international story that begins with World War II and concludes with an emotional 21st-century family reunion. Izak was born inside the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. Secret details of his birth mother, an unknown brother in Canada and his father's true identity slowly emerge in this extremely personal investigative film. Timely questions of identity, resilience, compassion and the plight of displaced persons are brought to life as Izak and Shep, the almost 70-year-old brothers, finally meet in Canada, then head to a nursing home in Quebec to introduce Shep to his elderly mother, Aida, for the first time.
The Israeli Film Series is a collaboration between Grail Moviehouse and the Asheville Jewish Community Center. This series is designed to allow us to use film as our window into the minds and culture of Israel. The 2nd Sunday of each month, a new Israeli film will be presented with a discussion to follow each film. The films have been selected to provide varying degrees and angles of perspective and insight. We invite you to come explore with us.
