Amos Gitai in conversation with Christian Delage
Filmmaker Amos Gitai, based in Israel, the United States and France, has produced an extraordinary, wide-ranging, and deeply personal body of work of both documentary and fiction, exploring the layers of history in the Middle East and beyond, including his own personal history, through such themes as homeland and exile, religion, social control and utopia.
Christian Delage is a Professor of History at the University of Paris 8 and Sciences Po Paris and a director, curator, and expert on the use of film as historical document.
Event co-sponsored by the Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University and by Cardozo Law School
Please join us on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21 for the screening of Amos Gitai's film, One Day You'll Understand (Plus tard, tu comprendras), followed by a Q & A with the director.
