Dir. Dylan Kussman (US, 2016, 93 min.)

In a tour-de-force performance, writer-actor Aaron Davidman has creatively adapted his acclaimed one-man stage show, using only simple props and backdrops. Davidman conjures a host of 17 characters on all sides of the existential divide--deftly moving between male and female, Jewish and Muslim, Israeli and Arab--seeking answers to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A multidimensional journey into the heart of the Middle East, and the intersection of politics, identity, and spiritual yearning.

Filmmaker Dylan Kussman moves freely and seamlessly among three locations--a live theater audience, the open expanse of a vast desert, and a small dressing room–exploiting the interplay of theatrical spontaneity, cinematic poetry, and spiritual intimacy. The result is a unique hybrid of stage and cinema that reignites hope for the future of this troubled region. Will be showing at Symphony Space September 12-17.

Screening followed by Q&A with writer/actor Aaron Davidman
