Ithaca Premiere, FREE with Deborah Starr (NES) & filmmaker Rafael Balulu
2019 > Israel > Directed by Rafael Balulu
Jacqueline Kahanoff was the first to write of Levantine and Mizrachi identities in Israel. Director Balulu traces the footsteps of the Levantine thinker and author, and through encounters with her elderly friends in Paris and leading intellectuals in the Mizrachi discourse in Israel, he not only draws a portrait of this impressive thinker, but also discovers the fate of Levantine identity in Israel as a cultural option for pride and honor. Sponsored by the Dept of Near Eastern Studies. Subtitled. More at go2films.com/films/levantine
