November 7: Manhattan: ‘In Her Footsteps’
A new film discovers the true meaning of belonging.
Forward executive editor Dan Friedman will moderate a Q&A following the November 7 screening of “In Her Footsteps,” the story of director Rana Abu Fraiha’s family’s journey, from their Bedouin village to Omer, a nearby Jewish town. They lived in Omer for 20 years, yet they ran into unexpected problems when Fraiha’s mother, a Muslim, expressed her desire to be buried in its Jewish cemetery.
The New York City premiere will be screened at 8:30 p.m. at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
