Through the Lens of Cinema: Borders, Identity & Vulnerability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the relationship between borders, identities, and vulnerability, and how has is relationship explored in cinema? How are borderlands also testing grounds - the sites of serious ethical dilemmas? By examining powerful selections from films by Jewish and Israeli filmmakers, we will explore ways in which identities are defined and re-defined (at the personal and communal level) through the complex process of bordering.
