Time of Favor
Joseph Cedar, 2000
Sun, Feb 10, 2002 2 PM
Winner of six Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Screenplay.

Director Joseph Cedar's first feature length film, Time of Favor (100 mins.) is a compelling thriller about Messianic nationalist settlers who conspire to blow up the Dome of the Rock mosque on the Temple Mount, the quintessential symbol of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The conflict is played out in a love triangle between an Orthodox army officer (played by heartthrob Aki Avni), his best friend, and a rabbi's daughter whom both men desire.

Screening first is Jeff Krulik's short Obsessed with Jews (1999; 9 mins.), a surprising and funny visual record of famous Jews.

Postscreening discussion led by Robin Judd, Department of History, and Donald Sylvan, Department of Political Science.
