In the Presence of My Neighbors - Documentary screening and conversation
With director George Gedeon
In this startling investigative piece, Canadian-Greek journalist George Gedeon focuses his camera on the historic and current climate of attitudes towards Jews. During several visits to Greece and through interviews with Jewish leaders, Holocaust survivors, and academics, Gedeon exposes the misinformed and intolerant views propagated by some Greek mass media and certain Church and political leaders. The film has been screened in Paris, Athens, Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv, as well as the Toronto Jewish Film Festival and the Toronto Holocaust Education Week.
