Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations

Wednesday, March 18, 7:00 pm in Zinman Hall

Florida Premiere

Documentary | US, UK, France, Hungary (2019) | 82 minutes | English

The film looks at the rise of Anti-Semitism throughout the world through the eyes of some of those most affected by it, and then provides an analysis as to why it’s occurring, with a focus on the US, France, the UK, and Hungary. With interviews from Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, academics, activists, journalists and the like, as well as some of the survivors from Pittsburgh and the French grocery massacre, the potential is a real gut punch that hopefully will open people’s eyes to how this kind of hatred begins.

Teacher, Worship Song Leader, spent decades in ministry in Long Island, New Jersey and Pittsburgh. Then came the morning of October 27, 2018, when a gunman went on a rampage during morning services.

Preview Work In Progress Feedback Free Screening

Documentary | US (2019) | 79 minutes | English

Americans once sipped coffee and ate pie around communal tables, sharing their struggles and dreams with strangers at Horn & Hardart’s iconic Automat.
These working class palaces nourished a sense of unity that bridged the diversity of class, language, gender and race in the urban melting pots of the East Coast. Travel back in time to experience this unique piece of America’s history. This is a parable of how we once dined happily together before turning to the isolated and unhappy experience offered by fast food.
