SF Film Festival Under Fire, Screening Rachel Corrie Doc

Update II: Mondoweiss features Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb on the attempts to censor screening of Rachel, and paint human rights advocates as “anti-semetic”.

Update: SFJFF Executive quits over ‘Rachel’ controversy, read update: Article in SF Weekly

Rachel “…if we, as an arts organization, are going to remain relevant in our time, it really is part of our role to catalyze conversation, however uncomfortable it may be.” – Peter Stein, director of San Francisco Jewish Film Festival

The SFJFF will screen “Rachel” on July 25th and August 4th, despite criticism.  Possible Q&A with Cindy Corrie, Rachel’s mother, following first screening.

An insightful and provocative exploration into the complexities of political solidarity, Rachel is the story of Rachel Corrie, a 22-year-old American member of the International Solidarity Movement, who died trying to prevent an Israeli army bulldozer from destroying Palestinian homes in the Gaza Strip in 2003. Director Simone Bitton aligns her filmmaking methodology with the ISM’s guidelines to state only objective and concrete details without placing judgment. Balancing interviews with the Israeli Defense Force’s current and former personnel and the participants and leaders in the ISM, Bitton examines the circumstances surrounding the unresolved case of Corrie’s death.

    Here are a couple of links relating to Gaza that I feel are relevant to the ongoing tragedy in which Rachel was a part and ultimately sacrificed her youthful life:
