The “What Would You Do: Ethical Dilemmas in Great Films” film series is a collaborative effort of Temple Beth Sholom and Best Video. Best Video owner Hank Paper and Temple Beth Sholom Rabbi Benjamin Scolnic will take turns introducing films and leading the post-film discussions.
The admission cost per film is $5 and reservations are ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. Most of the previous screenings have been sold out. Seats are still available for this upcoming show.
On Monday, Apr. 22, at 7 PM, we present the 2004 Israeli film “Walk on Water.” The film will be introduced and the discussion led by Rabbi Scolnic. This is the final film in this highly successful first film series at Best Video.
New York Times reviewer Dana Stevens wrote in 2004:
The director Eytan Fox had an unexpected international success in 2002 with “Yossi and Jagger,” a gay love story set against the unlikely backdrop of the Israel Defense Forces. With “Walk on Water,” his third feature-length film, Mr. Fox takes on the even more controversial subject of Israeli nationalism in the aftermath of the Holocaust. In fact, there isn’t much that “Walk on Water” doesn’t take on, from global terrorism and Israeli-Palestinian relations to homophobia in the Mossad, the Israeli security service.
