Givat Haviva is Sponsoring the Other Israel Film Festival

Givat Haviva is sponsoring Almost Friends, a documentary by Nitzan Ofir and Barak Heymann.  The film will be screened at the JCC on Sunday, November 9th at 2pm AND on Friday, November 7th at 10:30am.  The film will also be shown at Cinema Village on Monday, November 10th at 6:30pm.

The film follows Samar, an Arab girl from Lod, and Linor, a settler who lived in Gush Katif, who develop a friendship through a school program aimed at bridging gaps in Israeli society.  Their relationship becomes a profound and complex experience for both the girls' families, as their two worlds once divided by vast national, cultural and ideological differences, collide.
