Meetup Description: The Human Rights International Film Festival always has an amazing line-up of films. I highly recommend checking out the rest of the schedule to see films that aren't screened elsewhere and are very moving. This is a joint event with the NYC Jewish Veg*ns Meetup.

Look Into My Eyes (US premiere)

Year: 2008
Running time: 80m
Filmmaker(s): Naftaly Gliksberg
Country of production: Israel
www.antisemitism-movie.com/
Filmmaker Naftaly Gliksberg in person

About:
Is anti-Semitism a buzz-word for all kinds of real or imagined slights? Is it an arcane expression that should be retired, or is there legitimacy to outcries worldwide that anti-Semitism is again on the rise?

Filmmaker Naftaly Gliksberg sets out to investigate what anti-Semitism looks like today, crossing two continents to see how people react to direct questions about their attitudes toward Jews, Israel, and the notion that there is such a thing as anti-Semitism. It is a startling personal journey of painful discoveries as he explores representations and impressions of Jews and Israelis around the world. As he visits individuals in Poland, France, the United States, and Germany, Gliksberg discovers that people?s responses to his pointed questions are often a mixture of their own culture, some version of history, and a certain collective psychology.


Presented in association with 92YTribeca, www.92YTribeca.org, The Harriman Institute, www.harrimaninstitute.org and the Margaret Mead Film & Video Festival, www.amnh.org/mead
