Summer Screenings: Independent Film Series: “Coffee – Between Reality and Imagination”

Washington Jewish Film Festival, part of the 2nd annual ‘Summer Screenings’


“Coffee – Between Reality and Imagination” 95:00, Israel and Palestinian Territories, 2010, video compilation, Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.

In 2010, a group of Israeli and Palestinian filmmakers, working with Tel Aviv University filmmaker/teacher Yael Perlov, created a program of short films inspired by the common theme of coffee. In the process of making these engaging and revealing films, the filmmakers discovered that it is possible to create connections between different people through working together on each other’s projects and finding common elements in their lives. Enjoy an evening featuring these short films, first shown in last year’s Washington Jewish Film Festival and including the Festival’s Audience Award for Favorite Short Film. Food and drink specials will be available.
