On the Side of the Road film with former Israeli settler Lia Tarachansky

October 14, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky looks at Israeli’s collective amnesia of the fateful events of 1948 when the state of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians (700,000+) became refugees. Lia covers attempts by aware Israelis to educate their fellow Israelis. She follows the transformation of Israeli veterans trying to uncover their denial of the war that changed the region forever. Tarachansky then turns the camera on herself and travels back to her settlement where that historical erasure gave birth to a new generation, blind and isolated from its surroundings.
