About Event

In 1984, thousands of famine-stricken Africans ended up in camps throughout Sudan. At the initiative of Israel and the United States, a wide-ranging effort was planned to bring thousands of Ethiopian Jews to Israel. A Christian mother urges her nine-year-old son to declare himself Jewish to save him from starvation and death. The child arrives in the Holy Land. Declared an orphan, he is adopted by a Sephardic French family living in Tel Aviv. He grows up with the fear that one discovers his double-secret and lie: neither Jew nor orphan, only black. He will discover love, Western culture, and Judaism, but also racism and war in the occupied territories.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director Radu Mihaileanu.

Film in French, Hebrew and Amharic, subtitled in English.
