The rapper and informal educator, Jeremy “Cool” Habash, exposes us to the complex situations facing Ethiopian-Israeli youth. Jeremy works towards changing the humiliated and depressed image of the Ethiopian community in Israel, both in its own eyes and in the eyes of Israeli society, by bringing members of the Ethiopian community closer to their tradition – the songs, the meaning of the Ethiopian names, stories about the lives of the Ethiopian community and about the journey that has taken on mythical proportions
Director: Nitza Gonen. Israel 2009, 53 mins. Hebrew and Amharic w/English subtitles.
Followed by Closing Night Dessert Reception.
