The public is invited to a screening of the film
The Ancestral Sin
Directed by David Deri
Secret testiSecret testimony and protocols reveal for the first time the shocking truth behind the Population Dispersal Plan, which was imposed by the Israeli government in the first two decades of the state’s existence. The filmmakers reveal the true motives of the state leaders and the Jewish Agency for Israel and they show precisely how a mechanism of deception and coercion was used against those they deemed less equal.
Fifty years later, director David Deri, a native of Yeruham, exposes the cruel method used on his parents and their contemporaries and shows how this primal sin not only determined the trajectories of his life and the lives of his siblings and friends but also exacted a heavy toll from hundreds of thousands of people in the development towns.
After the screening of the film there will be a discussion between the director, David Deri, and Dr. Kfir Cohen.
