The Other Israel Film Festival Turns Five

During the opening festivities, the executive Director of the Other Israel Film Festival, Yitzi Zablocki, discussed this year’s festival with Forward arts and culture editor, Dan Friedman.

We reviewed the opening film, “Dolphin Boy,” and one of the other featured films, “Torn,” earlier this year, but Zablocki talks about some of the other exciting films the festival is bringing to an American audience.
