J Street Screens Tonight as Part of Philadelphia Independent Film Festival

April 20, 2015

J Street: The Art of the Possible a feature-length documentary partially funded by a grant from Voqal Fund is having its regional premiere tonight at the 8th annual Philadelphia Independent Film Festival.

The film, co-directed by Ken Winikur and Ben Avishai, follows an upstart, progressive American-Jewish lobby group called J Street that is advocating for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

A wonderful article by Shaun Brady about the origins of the film and its showing tonight can be found in the Philadelphia City Paper [link no longer available].

J Street: The Art of the Possible was also chosen as an official selection for the American Documentary Film Festival, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival and the Peace on Earth Film Festival.
