About THE ANCESTRAL SIN:
Using testimonials and previously- sealed government transcripts, director David Deri uncovers an unsettling dark chapter in the narrative of how Israel was settled and reveals the racism that shaped the country. In the early 20th century, the Jewish Agency’s social housing project was an integral program to settle the land of Israel. Most Jewish immigrants wanted to live in the cities. In order to help population dispersion, the Jewish Agency responded to this trend, using questionable means to convince mostly Sephardic and Mizrahi immigrants to settle in the most destitute areas of the country.

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.
