Area screenings

In partnership with area educators, we announce these screenings of similar titles, which further enlighten the situation in Israel/Palestine. Here are events of which we're aware.

St. John Fisher College

The title refers to a rite of passage for young people, jumping off the precipice of the Ottoman-era sea wall into the Mediterranean.

  • "Jumping gives you strength to face your future. A young person will take one jump today, and make ten more in life. There's a direct connection between jumping and life." – Waleed Kashash, artist
  • In life it's better to jump" – Makram Khourty, actor

With this there's history-light, a brief encounter with the background.

  • You feel like you're an "immigrant in your own home" – Amir Abdel Ghani, waiter

For this screening, the College is planning on having someone introduce the film. Following, they will host a conversation with the audience about the film.

There is no admission charge; the program is open to the public.

Please refer to these campus directions. Here's the St. John Fisher College announcement of this program.
