Israeli Film Night at the Windsor JCC 7:00PM

7:00PM - 9:00PM  

As part of our “Israel Week” at Camp Yomee, the Windsor JCC will be welcoming “Shlichim” from the World Zionist Organization in Windsor for additional, evening events on August 15th and 16th, at 7pm. The first event on Monday August 15th, will feature a short film from The Beit Ha'am Films kit which was created and assembled by the Department for Diaspora Activities at the World Zionist Organization. It consists of short Israeli films that were carefully chosen from dozens of prize-winning works. The films present various perspectives on Israeli society, the way of life in Israel, and issues of concern to young Israeli filmmakers. The film we will be watching is called “Barriers” which tells the story of Uri, a young officer, together with two soldiers under his command, are manning a checkpoint. Two women from the "Watch” organization are filming events at the checkpoint. Uri receives an order to close the checkpoint because of a bomb threat, and tension rises as an ambulance carrying a sick child arrives from a Palestinian village. Uri's choices will either save or sacrifice people's lives.
