FILM & DISCUSSION (CHILDREN OF JERUSALEM): 7:00 PM

Children of Jerusalem is a fascinating series of seven half hour documentaries directed by Academy Award-winning director Beverly Shaffer and produced by the National Film Board of Canada in 1994. The series focuses on the daily lives, hopes, dreams and fears of Israeli and Arab children who live in and around the holy city of Jerusalem.  Ages 9 through 13, each child narrates his or her unique life, and although they all live in close geographic proximity to one another, their lifestyles are light-years apart.  Join us for a viewing of several of these documentaries, and a compelling discussion on what has become of the seven.
