7 p.m. Mideast Focus Film Series: Tel Aviv on Fire
February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Tel Aviv on Fire is a comedy that highlights the awful absurdity of the Occupation—and proves it’s possible to find humor in the midst of cultural conflict. Ordinary life is impossible to disentangle from political trauma for a dialogue coach working on a Palestinian soap opera. In this film, comedy sprouts from an absurd and tangeld reality. Winner of the Best Film and Best Screenplay awards at the Haifa International Film Festival 2019. (Opening reception at 6:15 p.m.)
with guest speaker: Playwright Ed Mast
Location: Bloedel Hall
