"The Passengers" - Tuesday, May 14, 2019 / 6:30pm
The Passengers tells the story of the Ethiopian Jews and the struggle for a final, abandoned community to immigrate to Israel. The film follows the unlikely journey of two young men on a fateful trip to America as representatives of a grassroots advocacy campaign. When the pressure of representing its desperate community builds and an increasingly conservative Israeli government remains uninterested despite pervasive cries of racism, the pair must reconcile with an uncertain and fateful future. This screening will be followed by a conversation with filmmaker Ryan Porush and David Elcott of the Wagner School of Public Service at NYU, and Laura Katz Cutler, Managing Director of the Center for Israel Studies at American University.
