Toronto Jewish Film Festival: Comrade Dov (Online)
1 June 2020
*special NIFC discount code below*
Goddamned Communist. Internal enemy. Privileged Tel Aviv Ashkenazi. Dov Khenin has been called almost everything during his thirteen-year tenure as Member of Knesset for the Jewish-Arab party ‘Hadash’. His advocacy of socialist and democratic values harken back to the ideals that helped build the nation, but they also make him the enemy of powerful detractors. Director Barak Heymann (winner of the David A. Stein Award for Lone Samaritan) has followed Khenin throughout his thirteen years in parliament, creating a film that examines the wounds of contemporary Israeli society. Comrade Dov is a surprising, thought-provoking portrait of a unique politician who refuses to give up.
With the purchase of a ticket, you will be able to watch this film online for 24 hours. This film is screening on June 1st.
Join director and NIF International Council member Barak Heymann for an online Q&A on Tuesday, June 2nd at 3pm Eastern.
