Shores of Light, Salento 1945-1947: Film and Director Q&A

Join us at 6pm GMT for this free film streaming on Zoom.
We will be showing the film Shores of Light, in the presence of Israeli film director and writer Yael Katzir. After the film, you will be able to join our conversation with Yael Katzir and ask questions about the film.
After WWII, thousands of Jewish survivors arrived in the Italian region of Puglia on their way to the land of Israel. To their surprise, they were welcomed by the poor local Italians. At this time of psychological and physical healing, hundreds of children were born. The film follows the story of three Israeli women who were born then, in Santa Maria di Leuca (1946). They decide to discover the footprints left by their parents. The film weaves rare historical footage with unique current testimonials capturing a ray of light after great darkness.
Tickets are free but booking is essential.
