CASTING OUT

(113min, Canada/Israel/Germany/USA, 2014)
 

A series of films that examine extremities, those that dare push beyond them, and the very nature of being an outsider. Some are cast out by birth or circumstance; others choose to cast out on their own.

Here we celebrate those who break the mold, and challenge norms of all kinds – of religion; family; sexual orientation; dress code; and society’s expectations at large.

Featured films: 7 Day Gig, Dear God, End of Season Sale, Firstborn, Gloomy Sabbath, Some VacationYidlife Crisis (episodes 1 & 2), and Zazaland.

Presented with GLOE – Kurlander Program for GLBT Outreach & Engagement.

Co-presented by Sapling Pictures and Congregation Bet Mishpachah.

Anne S. Lewis, director of Some Vacation, will be joining us for a Q&A after the screening.

Saturday, February 21, 8:30 pm
