Brazilian fishing village, a tropical paradise, becomes a tourist destination, bringing with it money and western culture. The film presents the conflict and reversal of roles – the village young people are striving to earn money and embrace the western way of life, and the western tourists, a group of Israelis in this case, yearn life of simplicity and pleasure at reduced cost.
The film is in Hebrew and Portuguese with Hebrew subtitles.

Dance Movie Screenings
a film by Ari Libsker
Stalags were pocket books whose stories revealed lusty female SS officers sexually abusing camp prisoners. During the 1960s, parallel to the Eichmann trial, sales of this pornographic literature broke all records in Israeland hundreds of thousands of copies were sold at kiosks. The popularity of the Stalags only declined after a much-reported trial, in which their authors were accused of distributing anti-Semitic pornography. This film examines the notorious phenomenon, exposing the creators of this genre for the first time. It posits that the combination of pornography and the Holocaust also appears in canonic Holocaust literature and continues to be a widespread part of the representation of the Holocaust in Israel today.

We know what you did this summer…
You have discovered there are no available apartments in Jerusalem…
You were asked 700 dollars for a hovel in the downtown…
You went too see an apartment and 30 more contenders were there…
People living abroad had bought your place and you had to look for another one…

The film by Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein, author of No Logo.
In the wake of Argentina’s dramatic economic collapse in 2001, Latin America’s most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment. The Forja auto plant lies dormant until its former employees take action. They’re part of a daring new movement of workers who are occupying bankrupt businesses and creating jobs in the ruins of the failed system.
The story of the workers’ struggle is set against the dramatic backdrop of a crucial presidential election in Argentina, in which the architect of the economic collapse, Carlos Menem, is the front-runner. His cronies, the former owners, are circling: if he wins, they’ll take back the companies that the movement has worked so hard to revive.
After the screening there will be the conversation with the journalist Michal Greenberg (Ha`aretz).
