Israeli Film: 'The Syrian Bride” (Fiction) Filmed in the Golan Heights, on the Border between Israel and Syria, this film is bound to provoke deep thought. Political differences threaten to permanently pull one family in two as a young Israeli girl is betrothed to a Syrian man. This many faceted film probes the politics, cultures and emotional depths of both Israelis, Israeli Druze nad Syrian Druze societies. Showing time: 97minutes, produced in 2004. Not rated; portrays political controversy. TBE's Israeli films are free and Temple's Arbor Street doors open at 7:00 pm, films begin at 7:15pm and are followed by an often animated discussion. Snacks, beverages and much schmoozing among friends (known and new), precede the showings.
