MPJC Presents ...AN ISRAELI SOLDIER'S STORY
Bob Rylett sets the scene with his song, A Time to Heal, which is an apt beginning to prepare for the film of An Israeli Soldier's Story told by the soldier himself, Eran Efrati. His anguish is palpable throughout his telling as he begins the transition from the “wrong-side” to face the horrors of the killing he cannot accept. In collaboration with the Social Justice Center of Marin
The final statement of the police he meets in Maryland after returning to the US is revelatory.
