Join us for the second session of the Spring 2023 Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Film Series.

The Unorthodox (2018 / 92 min.) - Directed by Eliran Malka

The year is 1983 and Yaakov Cohen, the owner of a Jerusalem printing press, is tired from being pushed around. It seems that he was born on the wrong side, with the wrong family name and in a moment's decision he decides to establish a Sephardic-ultra-Orthodox list that will run to the Jerusalem municipality. He gathers two friends, and together they improvise a campaign - no means, no connections, no money, but with much rage, passion and a sense of justice.

The viewing will be facilitated by Drs. Ayala Hendin and Younasse Tarbouni of the Jewish, Islamic, and Middle Eastern Studies department
