Pass the Popcorn

While Ken Loach continues to demonstrate intolerance and violent, zealous bigotry, Israel moves forward with an increasing critically important movie industry that is sensitive and honest in dealing with the complex issues of the region.

Amaji, a film by Yaron Shani and Scandar Copti, one an Israeli and one a displaced Jordanian, studies the intense inter-relationships between Jews, Christians and Arabs, all living, loving and trying to survive in Jaffa, won the Wolgin Prize for best feature film at the 2009 Jerusalem Film Festival.
