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!
