ANTISEMITISM, 2020
Countries: France / Canada / Israel

Thursday, December 2 – Sunday, December 5

An exploration of antisemitism in France, from its origins in the Middle Ages to today, and how the situation in France speaks for its rise around the world.
Director Ilan Ziv (Six Days in June) examines how the depiction of “the Jew” in society has been used to stoke fear throughout France’s history and how political and social parties have relied on antisemitic tropes to jeopardize democracy.
Highlighted by Norm Wilner as one of his top 5 films at TJFF2020: “It’s not an easy watch – especially when Ziv digs into the way Jewish stories have been represented in the French media, all the way back to the Dreyfus Affair – but at this particular point in time, it’s a necessary one.”


Sunday December, 5th @ 7pm: Live Zoom Panel Discussion focusing on the current state of antisemitism in Canada, and its rise on university campuses.

With:

  • The Honourable Irwin Cotler, Canada’s newly-appointed Special Envoy to Preserving Holocaust Remembrance and Combatting Antisemitism
  • University of Windsor Faculty of Law students Hezekiah Davies and Sadie Werner
  • Moderated by Ron Levi, Associate Director of the Munk School for Global Affairs & Public Policy.
