Postponed: VIRAL: ANTISEMITISM IN FOUR MUTATIONS
First show: March 13
As of March 11, in addition to increased sanitation throughout our facilities and other precautions we are taking, we are also reducing seating capacity in each of our theaters to a number that will allow for what is presently considered sufficient space for social distancing.
We are evaluating the situation as it evolves on a daily basis and will continue to follow the guidance of government agencies. We understand that circumstances will likely remain fluid in the coming days and weeks. We will adapt accordingly and update you with any changes to our programs.
A Q&A will follow Sunday, March 15 screening
By virtually every yardstick, antisemitism in the US and Europe is rising and worsening in ways not seen since the 1930s. It comes in the forms of vandalism, social media abuse, assault and murder. Like a virus, it mutates and evolves across cultures, borders and ideologies, making it all but impossible to stop. Filmmaker Andrew Goldberg explores its infectious behavior as he travels through various countries to speak firsthand with victims, witnesses, antisemites, and interviewees including Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Fareed Zakaria, George Will and Deborah Lipstadt.
The film examines how some on the American far right have incited such acts as the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. In Hungary, we see how the Prime Minister has launched a massive campaign against Jewish Holocaust survivor and billionaire George Soros that’s reminiscent of Nazi propaganda. And in France, the film illuminates the seemingly endless wave of violence against Jews by Islamists and radicals.
The increasing bigotry, and at times violence, within each of these countries paints a terrifying portrait of how global hatred disseminates and harms. As activist Maajid Nawaz says in the film, “If we don’t draw a red line in the sand when it comes to antisemitism, Muslims will be next, gays will be next and everyone else who is deemed a minority will be next.”
