Our encore screening of this award-winning Israeli-French drama opens in 1984 with thousands of Ethiopian Jews living in a refugee camp in the Sudan. Hoping for a better life for him, a Christian mother smuggles her son onto an Israeli rescue plane, saying, “Go, live, and become.” “A powerful recounting of the humanitarian work that Israel has done for decades. A brave story of resilience and acts of loving kindness.”-Riva Gambert, Director, EBIJFF & Under One Tent
