Commemorating African American History Month
Village of Peace
Documentary | NR | 2014 | USA/Israel | 68 minutes

In 1967, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, a community of African Americans migrated to Dimona, Israel from Chicago. Approximately 300 people made the original migration, and today, more than 5,000 African-Hebrew Israelites live in Israel. This beautifully shot documentary offers a rare glimpse into this unique community whose culture evolves from an uncommon interpretation of the bible. The founders of the Village recount their epic journey, as the stories of four villagers are woven together to portray a community unlike any other, inspired by ancient scripture, and a determination to live life in its purest form.

Tickets: $8/ $5 members, 65+, under 30
