TORONTO ARTS & CULTURE Message Board › THIS SUNDAY DEC 9, 2pm - Special screening of EXILE: A MYTH UNEARTHED and Q&
|A former member|
Given all the recent discussions regarding the conflict in the middle east, I wanted to share with you that the new documentary: EXILE - A Myth Unearthed will screen this week in Toronto, from Dec 7 - 13, at the Projection Booth East (details below and attached). The film is produced by Amit Breuer (Checkpoint, The Guantanamo Trap) and the National Film Board of Canada.
The story of the Jewish exile began over 2000 years ago, and has since dominated western civilization and impacted the landscape of the middle east. Exile deconstructs the myth presenting an alternative narrative to the story, and, especially now, serves as a resource and asset towards progressive discourse about Israel and Palestine.
On Sunday Dec 9, there will be an engaging Q&A discussion with director Ilan Ziv, and please feel free to share this with your friends, family and relevant social networks.
Looking forward to seeing you there and thank you for your support.

EXILE: A MYTH UNEARTHED by Ilan Ziv
The exile of the Jewish people has played a central role in Christian and Jewish theology for nearly 2,000 years. It's even mentioned in Israel's national anthem and its Declaration of Independence. But what if the exile never actually happened? This documentary by Ilan Ziv invites us to review and rethink our ideas around the exile, raising important ethical questions about its impact on present-day Middle Eastern issues along the way.
