Anti-Semitism – 2000 Years of History
This four-part series explores the long-spanning history of antisemitism, from antiquity to the 21st century, and considers its shifting forms under Stalin and Hitler, and against Alfred Dreyfus, Spinoza and others.
Bacon & God’s Wrath
Ninety-year-old Razie Brownstone reflects on her life’s experiences as she prepares to try bacon for the first time.
The Green Prince
This real-life thriller tells the story of one of Israel’s prized intelligence sources, the son of a top Hamas leader, who operated under the code name ‘The Green Prince’. Focusing on his complex relationship with his handler, this is a gripping account of terror, betrayal, impossible choices – and of a friendship that defies all boundaries.
Something for the tastebuds:
Featuring freshly chopped Israeli/Arab salad, exquisite mussakhan (Palestinian roast chicken) and kreplach made to perfection, Breaking Bread is a mouth-watering film about hope, collaboration and extraordinary flavours.
All the Beauty and the Bloodshed
From Academy Award winner Laura Poitras (Citizenfour), All the Beauty and the Bloodshed is a gripping portrait of Jewish artist and activist Nan Goldin, told through her slideshows, intimate interviews, groundbreaking photography, and rare footage of her personal fight to hold the Sackler family accountable for the opioid crisis.
