An Evening with Israeli Filmmaker Nitzan Gilady - Added Oct 11, 2015
Boston International and GLAAD are excited to co-host acclaimed Israeli film director Nitzan Gilady, as he visits Boston on November 11, 2015 from 5:30-7:30pm at the offices of Day Pitney LLP. Mr. Gilady will be discussing two of his documentary films, Jerusalem is Proud to Present (2008), and Family Time (2010). These films focus on the experience of LGBTQ individuals and communities in Israel, as well as Mr. Gilady’s own personal experiences during a transformative trip he took with his family to the Grand Canyon. Family Time tells the story of an Israeli family (of Yemeni descent) making a road trip across the desert in a small RV – in an effort to see the Grand Canyon. Along the way, the film focuses on the levels of varying perspectives among the vastly different family members, and how each person’s experience contributes to the family dynamic. Jerusalem is Proud to Present is an award winning documentary about the 2006 WorldPride Festival, held in Jerusalem. This gripping film follows the lives of members of the Open House, Jerusalem’s LGBTQ community center, who were subject to many threats of violence during the planning of the festival in a city that is considered the holy center of three of the world’s most prominent religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
Nitzan will be screening portions of these films to foster a discussion about his experiences, with the chance for audience questions and answers. Tickets to the event are $10 and include light appetizers and beverages.
