Palestine: Hackney PSC’s Catastrophe Club presents a film and discussion

Tuesday 28th February, 7 for 7.30 start:


on “Defamation” (dir. <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Yoav Shamir, 2010, 93 mins)
Plus: Q&A with <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Miri Weingarten

This fascinating film looks at the political use of <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Holocaust memory and anti-semitism claims. In his exploration of modern Israeli life, the filmmaker travels the world in search of the most modern manifestations of the “oldest hatred” and comes up with some startling answers. In this irreverent quest, he tacks onto a class of Israeli school children on a pilgrimage to Auschwitz and follows <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>American Jewish leaders to the capitals of Europe where they warn government officials of the growing threat of anti-Semitism.

Presented by <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Miri Weingarten, director of J News- Alternative Jewish Perspectives on <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Israel/<strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Palestine. An Israeli citizen, Weingarten has been a key member of Physicians for Human Rights-<strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Israel since 1999 and is now based in London.
