Everyone remembers and loves John Hughes' classic, The Breakfast Club about high school students from different socio-economic backgrounds who reconcile stereotypes of each other while sitting in detention. What happens if a similar scenario occurs in Israel? If you take students, religious and secular, left-wing and right-wing, rich and poor, and make them sit in a room together? In association with the American Friends of Ariel, the Jewish Arts & Film Festival is proud to present a special screening of three award-winning student films written and directed by graduates of the film track at Ariel University Center of Samaria that explore political, religious and class differences among Israeli students.
Each of the films has been acquired by major Israeli television stations:
"Chaotic" (20 minutes, 2009) · Written and directed by Yael (Fogel) Gruber
“To Touch or Not to Touch” (20 minutes, 2010) · Written and directed by Yochi Perel
"Not Gonna Move" (18 minutes, 2011) · Written and directed by Moria Dvir
Followed by a Q & A with Avi Zimmerman, Executive Director of American Friends of Ariel.
