The Academic Outreach committee would like to invite you to join us on Saturday, January 9, 2020, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm for a zoom viewing and discussion of the movie Afterward with filmmaker Ophra Bloch.
“ Jerusalem born trauma expert Ofra Bloch forces herself to confront her personal demons in a journey that takes her to Germany, Israel and Palestine. Set against the current wave of fascism and anti-Semitism sweeping the globe, Afterward delves into the secret wounds carried by victims as well as victimizers, through testimonies ranging from the horrifying to the hopeful. Seen as a victim in Germany and a perpetrator in Palestine, Bloch faces those she was raised to hate as she searches to understand the identity-making narratives of the Holocaust and the Nakba, violent and non-violent resistance, and the possibility of reconciliation. The film points toward a future – an “afterward” – that attempts to live with the truths of history in order to make sense of the present.”
