The Screen Presents: Nov. 15-21 God’s Neighbors, A One Night Only Screening of Meni Yaesh’s Israeli Drama Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival presents God’s Neighbors, a thought provoking story about violence in the name of God and the essence of faith as reflected through one man’s personal journey. With Tarantino overtones, the film follows three young men who take it upon themselves to enforce religious observance within a traditionally observant but mixed community. Described as “an impressive multi-layered … film”, God’s Neighbors has a superb ensemble cast, excellent direction and script, and a punchiness to its pace due in part to its musical score. First time director Meni Yaesh knows well the community portrayed in the film. It is where he grew up and still lives. Saturday Nov. 16 at 7pm. Featuring a Q/A with Director Meni Yaesh. Tickets on sale now. All Is Lost, Robert Redford’s Capstone Performance is Still Playing!

In telling the horror show of slavery, 12 Years doesn’t flinch. Families torn apart, slaves whipped and women raped; the scenes are there, but the brutality of what you witness remains hours, days after you leave the theater.
Iman Aoun, co-founder of Ashtar Theatre, recently presented a lecture on the Theatre of the Oppressed and how it manifested through an idea called “The Gaza Monologues.” Through Ashtar Theatre’s youth training program, Palestinian children of all faiths were recruited for a series that helped them give voice to their trauma. Aoun’s mission of making theatre a fundamental need to Palestinian society meant navigating as many as 741 checkpoints on the way to a destination, but the work was vital.
When Sophia Wallace first began to consider the clitoris as the subject-matter for her next project, her first thought was simply, “you can’t go there.” Once the seed had been planted in her brain, however, she realized that she “really didn’t have a choice.” The world was expressing an obvious need to be educated about the clitoris, and she would do the best she could to fill that need. As a part of that process, Wallace recently presented her work to a photography class at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
