Two short films followed by a discussion:


JOE’S VIOLIN (24 min) A 91 year old Holocaust Survivor donates his violin of 70 years to a local instrument drive, changing the life of a 12 year old African American schoolgirl from the the Bronx, and unexpectedly, his own.

THE SYRIAN PATIENT (60 min) Under the cover of darkness, Israeli military ambulances transfer wounded Syrians across the border to Israeli hospitals. Majad, a young Syrian boy, has lost part of his face and is brought immediately to ENT specialist Dr. Eyal Sela, who operates on him for 9 hours. As Majad slowly recovers, the two of them develop a very special relationship.
