AJFF365 presents: “A Tale of Four Minorities”
February 16 - February 25$13
As topical as it gets, in the fall of 2019, Filmmaker David Deri-Barkai began documenting four families, parents and their children – his secular gay family in Tel Aviv, a Jewish Ultra-Orthodox family in Beit Shemesh, a Muslim family in Taibeh and a Jewish Religious family in the Ofra settlement (West Bank). The pandemic that broke out a few months later, along with the lock-downs, fears and social unrest that followed, created unprecedented family and national pressure. While for some, their belief is a source of strength, others confront doubts, and rifts are deepening—but a fascinating dialogue and surprising alliances are created.
