26th Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival

The Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival is a program of the Independent Jewish World Cinema.

12:00am: Menachem Begin: Peace And War
This taut, riveting biopic examines the political life of Israel’s sixth prime minister whose 1977 election ended nearly three decades of Labor Party domination. A man of contradictions, Begin was on the “wanted” list during the British Mandate, signed a peace treaty with Egypt and advocated for the rescue of Ethiopian Jews. Through rare archival footage as well as current interviews with Israeli leaders, we see a multi-faced portrait of a complex man.

10:00pm: Menachem Begin: Peace And War With Professor Eran Kaplan
