Showing of the Movie:
A Bottle In The Gaza Sea:  You can view the trailer here.
 a film by Thierry Binisti
“A gripping, unsentimental drama with a lot of action and a pacifist message of hope and reconciliation. A Bottle in the Gaza Sea is must-viewing.’’
Tal is a 17-year-old French woman who has settled in Jerusalem with her family. She writes a letter expressing her refusal to accept that only hatred can reign between Israelis and Palestinians. She slips the letter into a bottle, and her brother throws it into the sea near Gaza, where he is carrying out his military service. A few weeks later, Tal receives an e-mail response from a mysterious “Gazaman,” a young Palestinian named Naïm. And thus begins a turbulent but tender long-distance friendship between two young people that are separated by a history they are trying both to understand and change.
