Mr. Gaga, 100 minutes
English and Hebrew with English subtitles
Ohad Naharin is a man with an extraordinary vision. He is regarded as one of he most important choreographers in the world today. He is known for developing "Gaga"--a movement language tht resists lables, highlights somatic experience , emphasizes improvisation, and pushes dancers to use their bodies in ways that are ignored or overlooked by other dance techniques. The award winning documentary explores how Naharin's movement has not only shaped contemporary Israeli dance, but has redefined the modern dance world at large. Filmed over eight years, the film mixes intimate rehearsal footage mainly from the Batsheva Dance Company, with previously unseen archival footage and breathtaking dance sequences. Mr. Gaga is the story of this great path breaking artist who upended the language of modern dance.

The Wedding Plan, 110 minutes
Hebrew with English subtitles
An Ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman is jilted by her fiance 22 days before their wedding. Instead of canceling the reception venue booked for the eighth day of Hanukah, she trusts her that Ha-Shem will provide a replacement and that the ceremony will take place. Viewers will watch Michal at a series of restaurant dates arranged by a matchmaker. Instead of trying to submissively please the men placed before her, she challenges them with probing questions and often answers her inquiries so honestly they are taken aback. After twists in the plot, the writer and director keeps us guessing until the end. No hints as to the ending. You will have to join us to see if a groom appears at the wedding.

Paper Clips, 84 minutes
It began as a lesson about prejudice...What happened next was a Miracle.
When the students of Tennessee's Whitwell Middle School began studying the Holocaust as a way to learn about intolerance and diversity, nobody could have predicted the results. In 2001, the Paper Clip Project culminated in a unique memorial that changed the lives of those who created it, as well as, touching Holocast survivors, and countless communities. Because Norwegians invented the paperclip and used it as a symbol of solidarity against the Nazis, students started collecting them to help visualize such vast numbers of victims. As word spread online and in the media, paperclips poured in from around he world, 11 million of which are enshrined in an authentic German railcar standing in the schoolyard. This inspiring, award-winning doccumentary shows how even small-town students and educators can teach the world powerful lessons.
