Ethics in Film - "Arranged"­ (2007)


Doors open 6:30pm
Suggested donation: $5, includes snacks and beverages
Moderator: Chris Everett

When Rochel (Zoe Lister Jones) and Nasira (Francis Benhamou) – an Orthodox Jew and a Muslim, respectively – meet as new teachers at a Brooklyn school, coworkers and students expect friction. But the women discover they have a shared expectation of entering into arranged marriages. As they experience tension between their traditional cultures and life in contemporary America, Rochel and Nasira form a special bond. I will lead the post-film discussion.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
