Directors: Yael Kipper and Ronen Zaretzky

In Beit Jann, a Druze village, a dilapidated building whose walls are saturated with water houses the school with the highest matriculation achievement in Israel. The school, with its hundreds of students, that in the not-so-distant past had only 12% matriculation achievement, has been at the top of the list for several years, with 100% achievement. Every student graduates with a full matriculation certificate. But does the end justify the means? Does this success indeed improve the lives of Druze youngsters and promise them a better future? And what is the role of the constantly intensifying traditionalism and conservatism in Druze society in the face of the liberal values that the school espouses? These two contrary trends coexist in this closed society that is seeking its way in a changing reality.

A Question of Identity: Israeliness, Arabness, and the Middle East

A collaboration of the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute and the Jerusalem Cinematheque

A series of films and lectures dealing with the multicultural, binational, ethnic, and religious identity of Israeli society

In this series we will discuss the Palestinian-Arab identity and the identity of other ethnic or religious groups in Israel and we will explore the complex relations between these groups and the hegemonic Jewish society. We will also engage with the complex Israeli identity in its Middle Eastern context.
