A link to register for the discussion will arrive with your virtual entry to the film when the screening window opens. Special thanks to Baltimore Israel Coalition, our Online Community Gathering Sponsor.

About the Film:  It’s 1983 and Yakov Cohen, a printer in Jerusalem, is tired of being pushed around. Yakov is a regular guy with no money, no connections, and no political experience, but he does have a passionate belief that he and other Sephardic Jews are entitled to equitable treatment. With the help of two friends, Yakov starts the first ethnic political group in Jerusalem. They don’t know how to play the political game—they make it all up as they go along, setting out on one of the oddest, most surprising and moving elections Israel has ever known.

Winner of the Awards for Best Art Direction, Editing, Makeup, and Costumes at the 2019 Ophir Awards, and nominated for Best Foreign Film at the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards.
