CF Summer Film Festival: To Die in Jerusalem

August 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Phoenix Art Museum – Whiteman Hall
Sponsored by Lisa Sette Gallery
This event is open to the public.  Admission is free.

Ever since seventeen-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Abigail has never found peace.  Levy’s killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also seventeen, a schoolgirl from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away.  The two young women looked unbelievably alike.  To Die in Jerusalem unabashedly explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through the personal loss of two families, culminating in an emotionally charged meeting between the mothers of the girls – reflecting the conflict as seen through their eyes.  But some emotional chasms are too large to cross.

Not Rated, 76 minutes
Language: Arabic, English, Hebrew
