Movie Screening: Stateless

Q&A by Michael Drob, film’s director and producer
Join us for a special screening of the acclaimed documentary film, Stateless, about the emigration of Soviet Jews during the late 1980’s. The evening includes a personal introduction and Q&A by the movie’s director and producer, Michael Drob, recipient of the prestigious COJECO BluePrint Fellowship. On the brink of the collapse of the Soviet Union, tens of thousands of Soviet Jews were finally allowed to leave the USSR. What these people did not expect was that their final destination, America, no longer welcomed them with open arms. In 1988, American policy suddenly changed and thousands of Soviet Jews were stranded in Italy. Movie is appropriate for both Russian and English speakers.

This event is organized in partnership with the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades.

Tickets:
$10.00 for Kaplen JCC Members
