Generation 14+ Special Screening



To mark the 30th anniversary of the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film School (JSFS), Generation is devoting a short film programme to the outstanding work of this Israeli film school. Co-curated by Renen Schorr, founding director of the JSFS, and Maryanne Redpath, head of Generation, the programme presents six short films from the years 1997 to 2015 and examines the lives of young Israelis, which have been shaped by conflict and siege: A Scarred Generation.

Celebrations for the founding of the State of Israel are in full swing. Despite the curfew, Samer insists on escorting his older sister as she sets out to attend a graduation ceremony at the Palestinian University, where she will receive her diploma.
