Divided we stand with Duki Dror....


If you happen to live in London and are free on Wednesday evening 25 October - come and meet Duki Dror. This acclaimed young Israeli director is flying in especially to attend the UK premiere of two of his films.

Duki Dror is more than a director - he's an auteur. Almost all his works bear the hallmark of a personal obsession with roots and divided identities - be it a Vietnamese refugee growing up in Israel, or his own story - as the Israeli-born, US-educated, son of Iraqi-Jewish refugees.

The film evening at the French Institute in South Kensington, organised by Harif and Spiro Ark, will end with a Q & A session with Dror.

A word of advice if you're planning to do something else next Wednesday - cancel it!

Life is good for the Jews of Bahrain, as long as they don't visit Israel:
