Event Details:

FILM SCREENING, DISCUSSION WITH FILMMAKER MICHALE BOGANIM

Introduction by Jessie Labov (Dept of Comparative Literature)

"Odessa is one of those places with a mythical name, a legendary city that was once a centre of Yiddish culture, one of those places that you carry inside you long before you go there." Michale Boganim, a young Franco-Israeli film-maker, follows the journeys of Odessa's Jewish community, exiled in Israel and the United States, and offers a nostalgic and touching triptych of three cities in three colours: blue Odessa, with the faded beauty of an old city; Little Odessa, a Russian enclave in brick-coloured New York; and Ashdod, a glaringly white mushroom town that has sprung up in the Israeli desert. "Odessa...Odessa" ( France, 2005) has been shown at numerous film festivals, including Sundance, Berlin, and Jerusalem (where it won Best Director).

This screening is the opening event of the CREEES film series"Looking for a Bolshe Vita: European Films about Movement" which will take place over Winter and Spring Quarters 2008

Light refreshments will be served.
