1:30 – 3:00 Screening of “Wrestling Jerusalem” - Writer-actor Aaron Davidman conjures a host of different characters while seeking answers to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in WRESTLING JERUSALEM. Davidman takes a multidimensional journey into the heart of the Middle East, and the intersection of politics, identity and spiritual yearning. He embodies and gives voice to 17 different characters on all sides of the existential divide–deftly moving between male and female, Jewish and Muslim, Israeli and Arab–modeling what it takes to truly bear witness through the eyes of the other. Challenging long-held beliefs with sharp and unblinking observation, Davidman finds both entrenched isolation and shared humanity in the shifting moral compasses and competing narratives of all his characters. Filmmaker Dylan Kussman moves freely and seamlessly among three locations–a live theater audience, the open expanse of a vast desert, and a small dressing room–exploiting the interplay of theatrical spontaneity, cinematic poetry, and spiritual intimacy. The result is a unique hybrid of stage and cinema that reignites hope for the future of this troubled region. “The film makes no sweeping generalizations and offers no easy answers. Rather, it aspires to serve as an experience that combined with discussion, will address the issues the world community faces about Israel/Palestine and the broader concerns of our polarized world.” Click here to see what People Are Saying: http://www.wrestlingjerusalem.com/responses.html.
I look forward to the participation of all the chapters at this important mid-year Board meeting. If you have specific issues you would like raised at the Board meeting, please call or email me at least a week prior to the meeting.
