  • ReelIsraelDC: "The Galilee Eskimos"

    Offering the best contemporary Israeli cinema on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 8:00 PM in collaboration with the Embassy of Israel, the Washington Jewish Film Festival and The Avalon Theatre.

    As a financially-faltering kibbutz in Galilee, Israel is forced to file Chapter 11, many of its residents - adult men, adult women and children - pack their belongings and take flight before the bailiffs can arrive and formally shut down the community. Thus begins a long exodus out of the commune and out of the city. But in their departure, the emigrants neglected to bring with them a dozen senior citizens who share a special residence inside of the kibbutz, and when the new contractor (who has been hired by the foreclosing bank) arrives, the presence of the elderly individuals naturally surprises him. Never ones to be daunted, the seniors band tightly together and vow to rebuild the kibbutz singlehandedly.
