Achshav Yisrael's second event, "From Pioneers to City Slackers: The Evolving Image of Israelis On the Silver Screen," will take place on Sunday, November 15, from 3-5 p.m. in Koret Hall.

Israeli cinema is cutting-edge and exciting, and offers a wonderful glimpse into the nuances of Israeli society. During the program, we'll learn about the evolution of Israeli cinema with Dr. Eran Kaplan, an expert on Israeli film and the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Professor of Israel Studies in the Department of Jewish Studies at San Francisco State University. This will be an interactive presentation, including film clips, a conversation with Dr. Kaplan, and a chance to dialogue on the issues.

This event is presented in partnership with the Jewish Film Institute.

Tickets are $10 per person.

Parents, please note that childcare for kids one year and older will be available on-site for the cost of $5 per child. This fee can be paid directly on the ticket sales page.
