Israel in a Time of Terror
Terror bombing after terror bombing, day after day. A sidewalk café becomes as dangerous as a military outpost. A simple trip to the supermarket becomes a horror of flying nails, glass and death. How do Israelis deal with this pervasive terror? How do they explain their near-solitude in the world or their real feel-ings towards Arabs? These are some of the questions asked in this film, weaving interviews with street footage from places of terror bringing you closer than news footage can ever make possible. It's as disturbing as it is important as a historical document of the turbulent present times.
3:30 – 5:15 pm Anita
(2009 w/ English subtitles)
Anita (Alejandra Manzo) is a young woman with Down syndrome who lives a happy life in Buenos Aires, under the meticulous care of her mother Dora (Academy Award nominee Norma Aleandro). One tragic morning in 1994, everything changes when Anita is left alone, confused and helpless after the nearby Argentine Israelite Mutual Association is bombed (one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in Argentina's history). As Anita wanders through the city, she learns not only to care for herself, but touches the lives of those around her.
