Opening Night! In-Person at the West Newton Cinema!

Shared by Israelis, Jordanians, and Palestine, the Dead Sea is a unique salt-lake of exceptional value set at the lowest point on earth. It is also a looming regional disaster--huge sinkholes, abandoned beaches, and collapsing roads on all sides presage an ecological catastrophe. So far, regional leaders have failed to mount an effective response. Enter our heroes. Three men— an Israeli, a Jordanian, and a Palestinian--propose a bold first step: an unprecedented and dangerous swim across the Dead Sea.


Live conversation with Miriam May, CEO of Friends of the Arava Institute, and Dr. David Lehrer, Director of International Development at the Arava Institute, moderated by BJF's Artistic Director Lisa Gossels, included with purchase of ticket and pass.
