THE FORGOTTEN ONES

THE FORGOTTEN ONES

US PREMIERE Like their European counterparts, many Sephardic Jews and Jews from Arab lands left their homelands for the promise of freedom and opportunity in Israel. Unbeknownst to them, these Mizrahim were to be systematically relegated to bleak transit camps and development towns, and prohibited from enjoying full rights of Israeli citizenship. Through interviews and rich archival footage, Franco-Israeli director Michale Boganim explores the dark history of discrimination against so-called “non-white” Jews in the Promised Land – Karen McMullen

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Michale Boganim.
