Post-film discussion with special guest Chloe Kirk, Jewish Federation of Tulsa Director of Community Relations
About the film: Cinema Sabaya tells the story of eight women, Arab and Jewish, varying widely in age, income, marital status, and outlook as they attend a workshop learning to document their lives on video. As each woman shares her raw footage with the others, they are all forced to challenge their preconceived views and beliefs, coming together as mothers, wives, and women, and forming an empowering and lasting bond.
Cinema Sabaya presents a clever and heartfelt portrait of art’s capacity to unite disparate communities. Winner of five Israeli Academy Awards including best film, the story is full of life, love, humor, and authenticity.
Drama, 92min, Hebrew/Arabic with English subtitles
