The FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival has partnered with Roger Williams University to present its fall edition of the annual Roving Eye International Film Festival. The popular and acclaimed festival celebrating global cinema and artists will focus this fall's program on the Jewish Experience through short films, documentary, media and guest speakers with events on Nov. 11, 12 and 16.
This year’s series explores representations of the Jewish experience in Israel and across the globe, from the 20th century to present, with a focus on the Holocaust. The series includes a talk by the Rev. Nancy Hamlin Soukup, RWU University Multifaith Chaplain; and a screening of the award-winning film, “Emigration, N.Y.: The Story of an Expulsion.”
"Through film and scholarship, this series tells the stories of the Jewish experience globally — stories of joy, sorrow, faith, a rich culture, diasporas, fear and ultimately, hope,” said the Rev. Nancy Hamlin Soukup, a co-organizer of the series.
All programming will take place on the Bristol campus. The series is free and open to the public.
