Wednesday October 26: Through a Unique Lens – Focus on the Conflict

This will be Israel’s first screening of H2: The Occupation Lab since its sensational premiers at the Zurich Film Festival 2022 and DocAviv 2022.

Through rare archival footage and interviews with Israelis and Palestinians, the film explores the story of Hebron as a microcosm of the broader conflict.

Following the screening, Steven Silver will lead a wide-ranging panel discussion including Director Noam Sheizaf and Producer Hilla Medalia, followed by Q&A and group discussion.

Noam Sheizaf was Editor-in-Chief of +972 Magazine and Research Editor of Maariv Magazine. He has written/directed a wide range of documentaries including The Corridors of Power, The Human Factor, Lieberman and Meshulam.

Hilla Medalia is a Peabody Award winner, has received four Emmy nominations, and is internationally renowned for her films including To Die in Jerusalem, After the Storm, Numbered, Dancing in Jaffa, Web Junkie, The Go Go Boys, Censored Voices, Muhi – Generally Temporary, The Oslo Diaries, Transkids, and Leftover Women.

Steven Silver grew up in Habonim SA and was the last President of NUSAS at the time of its merger with SANSCO in 1991. He is an award winning filmmaker whose work includes Diameter of the Bomb, H5N1: Killer Flu, Gerrie & Louise, The Dark Years and The Bang-Bang Club. Steven led widely acclaimed film evenings at previous Kaleidoscope programs.

Thursday October 27: Culture through Commercials – Understanding Us

Commercials don’t just sell products – they tell stories that reflect our views and values, joys and concerns, hopes and dreams.

In this fun and fascinating session, charismatic educator-entertainer Shani Amihay Boneh will use TV advertisements from Israeli and around the world to explore the nuanced differences between the way Israelis and non-Israelis think, speak and behave.

Expect a rich and revealing evening – with some surprises!

Shani is a graduate of Ben-Gurion University, a former shlicha in Palm Beach, Florida, an actress and professional tour guide who runs unique interactive educational programs for groups from around the world. She and her husband Nir live on Kibbutz Kadarim with their two young children.

 Each evening session:

· will start with a delicious dessert buffet – and time to reconnect with many old and new friends

· will end with TAPS, cocoa, scotch, singing – and more – around the “camp fire”

·  50 NIS p/p – please pay cash at the door
