The Tenth Annual Saint Mark’s Mideast Focus Film Series has begins with My Tree (2021). It takes us to a world of secrets hidden by silence—and reminds us that, often, we “know not what (we) do.” Gifted with “a tree in Israel” at his bar mitzvah, a young Canadian sets out to find his tree and enters a labyrinth of dead ends. What he learns is life-changing, and raises questions for all of us.
There will be a reception celebrating our 10th year of this series, beginning at 6 p.m. in Bloedel Hall. The film will follow at 7 p.m., and discussion will follow the film. The special guest for the post-film discussion will be clinical psychologist Mark Braverman. If you are not ready to attend in person, the film and discussion will be available via Zoom, as in recent years.
