Metro Chicago Hillel invites you to attend a special screening of the amazing documentary East Jerusalem / West Jerusalem as part as the Israeli film festival! The screening will be Thursday evening, November 5.
We'll meet at Milt's BBQ at 5:30 for pre-show appetizers at 3411 N Broadway St, Chicago, IL 60657
Open to all Chicago college students, ticket includes appetizers at Milt's BBQ before the film, the screening at Chicago's historic MusicBox Theater and afterwards, a talk and musical performance by famed Israeli musician David Broza.
David Broza is a singer/songwriter long committed to a variety of humanitarian causes. His song, “It Will Be Good/Yihye Tov” has become an anthem in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. In East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem, Broza and his musician friends (including Grammy-winning Steve Earle, Palestinian Israeli singer Mira Awad and Iraqi Israeli Yair Dalal) take a remarkable journey outside of the political walls. East Jerusalem / West Jerusalem follows the artists over an eight-day period where they converge in a mash up of American, Israeli and Palestinian sounds.
