Tantura: Film & Discussion
Thursday – March 16, 2023, 7 pm PT
Zoom only: Register for a link to this film and discussion by requesting a link at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our colleagues at the Mideast Focus Film Series
at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle will commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Rachel’s death with a film screening and discussion of the film Tantura:“When Israeli graduate student Teddy Katz meticulously documented a massacre of Palestinian civilians surrounding Israel’s independence, he was initially celebrated for his groundbreaking work. But soon, he was stripped of his degrees and was publicly shamed as a fraudulent traitor. Decades later, incendiary new evidence emerges to corroborate Teddy’s initial findings, not just vindicating him, but raising profound questions about how Israelis—and we all—deal with the darker chapters of history.”
The discussion will feature a pre-recorded interview with director Alon Schwarz.
