Stories from Israel: Virtual Screenings and Live Discussion Part Two:
June 3-7, 2020
Discussion June 7, 2020, EST 1PM
Part 2 of Virtual Screenings + Live Discussion series, cosponsored with the Bender JCCGW, was an online screening from June 3-7 of 3 student films from the Ma’aleh School of Film & Television in Jerusalem
Following these 3 very distinct short films, each with its own unique insight and artistic approach, we had an enlightening online discussion with the director of Ma'aleh, Neta Ariel. We look forward to bringing you the next round of Israeli student films and discussions with filmmakers and composers soon! Check back here for updates.
Who Can Join: Anyone is welcome! On our trips, The backStorygroup visits film and music schools, where we watch and discuss Israeli student films, and our students show some of their work too. Our professional composers and producers give lectures and workshops at these schools, a valuable and inspirational experience for us all. These interactions between American and Israeli creators are a highlight of our trip, and here's your chance to be part of this aspect of the backStorygroup experience in Israel! Because of the the rich cultural background and foundation of the films, they're of particular interest to filmmakers and composers, but the films' natural audience is much broader. We welcome you to share in this event with us from your corner of the world.
