Tomorrow Night in Ottawa: Two Great Films....
The Free Thinking Film Society Presents
“The Monster Among Us” & "The Case for Israel"
Date: April 13, 2009, 6:30 PM
Place: National Archives/Library of Canada, 395 Wellington Street Ottawa
On April 13, 2009, The Free Thinking Film Society will present its first double feature – “The Monster Among Us” & “The Case for Israel”.
“The Monster Among Us” is Media Projects' film about the alarming rise of anti-Semitism in Europe – and includes excerpts from almost 200 hours of footage shot in Germany, Hungary, France, England, Holland and Belgium. Anti-Semitism has surfaced on university campuses, in the media, on the streets, on the Internet, at political demonstrations and in seemingly innocent social situations. The Monster Among Us examines this wave of anti-Semitism against European Jews and their institutions, mainly from the point of view of those who have directly experienced the violence or live every day with the threat.
“The Case for Israel” is a new landmark Feature Documentary with Alan Dershowitz, one of the most outspoken supporters of Israel in the United States. The film provides a vigorous case for Israel’s right to exist, to protect its citizen from terrorism, and to defend its borders from hostile enemies. Through incisive conversations with key judicial, political and academic leaders, Dershowitz refutes deeply entrenched misperceptions about Israel's history, Jewish claims to a homeland, individual rights under Israel's democratic system of government, the security fence, and military conduct in the face of terrorist attacks.
In addition to the two films, there will also be a panel discussion. Among the guests who will take part is Barbara Kay, columnist for the National Post.
The Free Thinking Film Society was established in 2007 in Ottawa to provide an alternative to the dominant narrative provided by regular art-house fare. To that end, The Free Thinking Film Society is dedicated to showing challenging conservative/libertarian films - films that would otherwise NEVER play in Ottawa. The Free Thinking Film Society is now on Facebook:
