What are we fighting for? Some are fighting for a state – or for their influence in one. Some are fighting for gender or identity rights. Other are competing for the right to a language, or simply for a better life for themselves and their loved ones.
In the film world we see such battles in the hundreds. And so we invite you to the 10th Copenhagen Jewish Film Festival, running from 25 to 28 February 2016. With a focus on fierce, loving, exceptional and honest struggles, we present the festival’s most qualified program so far.
Our desire is to present alternative perspectives on recognizable and often taboo subjects: The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, parent/child relationships, the banality of evil, and philosophy’s contribution to populist themes. Inspiration comes in part from our sister festivals in New York, London, San Francisco, Montreal, Budapest, Warsaw, Berlin, Jerusalem and Haifa.
