Siegal College 3rd Annual REEL ISRAEL 2011 FILM FESTIVAL

Jews Now (2010)

Wednesday, May 11 – 7pm
Call Siegal College at 216.464.4050 for tickets

Three men roam the world conflicted with their heritage, leaving behind a trail of hurt and anguish.

Dr. Hagai Dagan was born in a Kibbutz; a secular, atheist, Judaism scholar, he continues to conduct a complicated yet humorous conversation with G-d. Yehiam and Eran are two young men from religious homes, who turned their back on religion and are about to begin their military service. A Charismatic teacher named Dudu Palma teaches them that ideas can indeed change your life. Jews Now draws a broad Israel mosaic from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, from the Kdumim Settlement to the Kibbutzim in the North, but the heart of the film is the home – the relations between fathers and sons. For better or worse, Judaism is a family affair, a story of tradition and rebellion, a fight for your place in the world.

Directed by Galia Oz (Israel)
