At the Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival
Greek director Stelios Charalampopoulos has crafted an engaging and intimate portrait of the acclaimed Israeli iconoclast and internationally celebrated author, Amos Oz (A Tale of Love and Darkness), nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Shot partly in Arad, Jerusalem, and Salonica, Greece, the film traces the author’s personal background: from his adolescence on the kibbutz, where he met his wife, to his family tragedies, including his mother's suicide. This poignant piece allows the viewer to enter into the world of one of Israel's most fiercely eloquent proponents of co-existence and the Middle East Peace Process.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Emilie S. Passow
Director, Certificate Program in Medical Humanities, Department of English and Philosophy and the Judaic Studies Program, Drexel University College of Arts and Sciences
