‘Independent Jewish Voices – 100 Years After Balfour’ is a 25-minute film about the history of the Declaration, and its legacy up to the present. It features seven experts and activists, each of whom offer a distinct Jewish voice on the Declaration and the unfolding of its long-term impact over the past century. These seven powerful and lucid voices together offer a compelling and cogent range of insights into the troubled history of the Middle East, and powerfully demonstrate the continued vibrancy among Jews in Britain of political dissent and solidarity with Palestinians.
The screening will be followed by a short discussion of the issues raised by the film with two of the speakers who feature in it – the critic Professor Jacqueline Rose, and Rabbi Howard Cooper. Conversation will continue after the screening in the bar area of the Arthouse Cinema.
A £5 donation will be requested on the door, in support of the work of Independent Jewish Voices.
