65-30 Kissena Blvd
Film screening of Wrestling Jerusalem and talk back with playwright, director, actor and producer, Aaron Davidman.
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 truly to bear witness through the eyes of the other. Challenging long-held beliefs with sharp and unblinking observation, Davidman finds both entrenched isolations and shared humanity in the shifting moral compasses and competing narratives of all his characters.
Join us to have a discussion where we really hear and consider different points of view on one of the most divisive topics of our time.
Please RSVP on Eventbrite so that we have enough food.
