"If you're the relentlessly honest type,
this is probably the program for you."
- Washington City Paper

WHAT? Docs in Progress will be featuring two works in progress by
DC filmmakers Rebecca Kingsley and Rouane Itani at our monthly
feedback workshop.

WHO? You and anybody else who likes to offer their two cents on films.

WHEN? Tuesday, June 8 at 7:30 pm

WHERE? The Warehouse Theater (1021 Seventh Street, NW in Washington
DC/across from the new convention center/just a few blocks from the
Gallery Place or Mt. Vernon Square Metro Stations/food and drink on
site)

HOW MUCH? $5 at the door. When's the last time you paid $5 to see
two films?

WHY? You'll be supporting the local documentary scene, networking with
your peers, helping fellow filmmakers, and checking out what's it all
about for your own possible future screening at Docs in Progress.

MORE ON THE FILMS:

DAUGHTERS of THE LEVANT - Rouane Itani (30 minutes)
Women have often been at the forefront of immigrant families and
Arab-American women are no exception. This film traces the stories of
Lebanese and Syrian women immigrants to the United States who settled
with their families in cities and small towns across the country and
emerged as entrepreneurs, artists, and activists in their new
communities.

THE LAST COLONY - Rebecca Kingsley (20 minute excerpt)
In Washington DC, the capital of the world's best known democracy,
local citizens continue to be denied political rights that other
Americans take for granted -- the right to be governed by their own
locally-elected leaders rather than by the U.S. Congress. This film
looks at the history of Washington DC's unique relationship with the
federal government and its impact on the city's residents.

Trembling Before G-d is an unprecedented feature documentary
that shatters assumptions about faith, sexuality, and religious
fundamentalism. Built around intimately-told personal stories of
Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who are gay or lesbian, the film
portrays a group of people who face a profound dilemma - how
to reconcile their passionate love of Judaism and the Divine with
the drastic Biblical prohibitions that forbid homosexuality. As the
film unfolds, we meet a range of complex individuals - some
hidden, some out - from the world's first openly gay Orthodox
rabbi to closeted, married Hasidic gays and lesbians to those
abandoned by religious families to Orthodox lesbian high-school
sweethearts.

Vividly shot with a courageous few over five years in Brooklyn,
Jerusalem, Los Angeles, London, Miami, and San Francisco,
Trembling Before G-d is an international project with global
implications that strikes at the meaning of religious identity and
tradition in a modern world. For the first time, this issue has
become a live, public debate in Orthodox circles, and the film is
both witness and catalyst to this historic moment. What emerges
is a loving and fearless testament to faith and survival and the
universal struggle to belong.

Hey people in the San Francisco Bay Area:

Our new feature doc, SEEDS (which just premiered as the Opening Night Film at SILVERDOCS to 4 sold out theaters), is coming to the Bay Area.

SEEDS will be screening 4 times as part of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival:

"SEEDS introduces us to ten courageous teenagers trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy....Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the documentary Promises, SEEDS shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work, and often elusive" SFJFF, 2004

In order to make peace with your enemy, you have to go to war with yourself.

Sunday, 25 July, 4.15pm, Castro Theater, SF
Sunday, 1 August, 1pm, Century 16 Cinemas, Mountainview
Tuesday, 3 August, 6pm, Wheeler Auditorium, Berkeley
Saturday, 7 August, 1.30pm, San Rafael Film Center, San Rafael

More information on the venues and ticketing and the other great films at < http://www.sfjff.org>

If you're thinking of coming and are unsure which date to come, please come to the first screening at the Castro -- that's a 1100 seat theater, which we'd like to fill!

We'll be doing an interesting panel before that screening with filmmakers and subjects from another film, and two of our boys will be here from the Middle East, so come check us out.

Please spread the word to your local friends and family, and if anyone is interested in passing on an email flyer to their email list, please let me know. That would be great :-)

"..a spectacular film...truly impressive"
Judy Woodruff, CNN

------------

SEEDS introduces us to ten courageous teenagers from Israel, Palestine, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and American living together for three weeks at a camp in Maine, and trying to accomplish what most adults can never bring themselves to do: sit down in peace to face their enemy. Like a grown-up, harder-edged heir to the documentary Promises, Seeds shows that coexistence, even temporary, is tough work. SEEDS intimately documents this difficult journey, where there are no superficial resolutions.

"In order to make peace with your enemy, you have to go to war with yourself"
