Special Film Premiere Presentation: Mekonen

Jerusalem U and Miami Jewish Film Festival Present:

Mekonen

Mekonen: The Journey of an African Jew is the new mini-documentary from the creators of Netflix-featured Beneath the Helmet and PBS-featured Israel Inside. The film follows the backstory and personal journey of Mekonen Abebe, a young African-Israeli Jew, once a young shepherd in Africa and now a commander in the Israeli Defense Forces. Mekonen is one of many brave young men and women drafted into compulsory service in the IDF, to defend their homeland and the liberal values of democracy, freedom and equality. Mekonen is an uplifting and inspiring film that will move audiences and show viewers that anything is possible with the right attitude, tools and support. Stay following the film for a Q&A with the producer.

Monday, May 16, 2016, 7:30 p.m. at the Miami Beach JCC, 4221 Pine Tree Drive
