Kesher Hadash 2013 Participants Unveil Original Films

MA students who participated in The Davidson School Kesher Hadash Semester-in-Israel program in spring 2013 will present seven original films they produced in collaboration with the Maaleh School of Film, Television and the Arts at a special screening on October 2 at JTS, at 8:30 a.m. in Wingate auditorium.


One of the films is Beyond the Wall, created by Davidson students Josh Jacobs and Mollie Andron. Josh and Mollie (in a photo from the film above) share some thoughts about creating the film:


“The idea for Beyond the Wall stemmed from our trip with Encounter to Palestinian territories in the West Bank. One of our tour guides used the word "the Wall," which sparked an entire new understanding and narrative of Jerusalem and Israel. The film is rife with ‘walls’ and differences—religious, political, and ideological. The two main characters, Tamar and Yonatan, fail to see the perspective of the other and they realize that good will may not be sufficient to truly carry a dialogue or try to understand each other.”


Check back for photos from the screening later in the week.
