IAC Cinematec

IAC Cinematec was founded by Dr. Etti Inbal to introduce the US public to Israeli films, film makers, and daily life in Israel in an effort to create an Israeli-American community of film fans, who can share in the experience and enjoy dialogues about the films. Films are screened with English subtitles and attended by a guest director, actor, or a film professional, who will discuss issues related to the film in English.

Black Honey
As long as Abraham Sutskever lived, he wouldn't let a film about his life be made. Today, eight years after his passing, Black Honey tells the incredible story of the greatest Yiddish poet of modern times. The man who led the Paper Brigade underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, survived the WWII due to Stalin sending him a private rescue plane, testified in the Nuremberg Trials, and immigrated to Israel in 1947 where he led Yiddish culture, while writing in astonishing vitality. Directed By Uri Barbash.

The Oslo Diaries
The Oslo Diaries, directors Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan (Censored Voices, Sundance 2015) and Guest speaker Gidi Grinstien, Secretary of the Israeli Negotiation Team.

In 1992, with Israeli Paletinian relations at an all-time low and, a small group of Israelis and Palestinians gathered secretly in Oslo. The meetings that lead to The Oslo Accords changed the Middle East forever, they were chronicled only by the negotiators' diaries. This movie bring us a riveting account of 1100 days of secret talks as told by the people who were there at the table. The participants' detailed and often emotional entries recount the political intrigue, fiery rhetoric, unlikely friendships, and overwhelming desire for peace that were the heart of the negotiations.

Featuring never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews with key players - including the last on-camera conversation with former Israeli president Shimon Peres - the film recounts a geopolitical story, with a narrative voice that is personal and philosophical. Although politics ultimately doomed The Oslo Accords, the story's end for the people of Israel and Palestine remains unwritten.

Movie Screening: Stateless

Q&A by Michael Drob, film's director and producer
Join us for a special screening of the acclaimed documentary film, Stateless, about the emigration of Soviet Jews during the late 1980’s. The evening includes a personal introduction and Q&A by the movie’s director and producer, Michael Drob, recipient of the prestigious BluePrint Fellowship.  On the brink of the collapse of the Soviet Union, tens of thousands of Soviet Jews were finally allowed to leave the USSR. What these people did not expect was that their final destination, America, no longer welcomed them with open arms. In 1988, American policy suddenly changed and thousands of Soviet Jews were stranded in Italy.  Movie is appropriate for both Russian and English speakers.
