                2011, dir.: Annie Berman, 24 min. documentary short, HD 16:9 B&W, Stereo Created in Collaboration with Laura Mayer and Matthew Yoka, UnionDocs Collaborative, Brooklyn, NY, for the Living Los Sures project. An unexpected relationship reveals itself over three months of phone calls between two unlikely collaborators - 'Marty,' a 25-year old Ultra Orthodox Hasidic family man, and Annie, a filmmaker in residence at UnionDocs. It all begins when Annie places an ad on Craigslist for a Hasidic researcher for a film about Williamsburg's eruv,* and 'Marty' answers. Both parties agree to record their calls, keep Marty's real name and identity secret, and never to meet; both live in Williamsburg. *Eruv: a wire boundary that symbolically extends the private domain of Jewish households into public areas, permitting activities within it that are normally forbidden in public on the Sabbath.

                      from Nicky Larkin Added 6,061 8 0

                      https://www.facebook.com/fortyshades Forty Shades of Grey is a non-narrative documentary that presents an alternative look at the Israel/Palestine conflict from both sides of the fence. For the sake of effective news stories, the Israel-Palestine conflict is all too often portrayed in very simple digestible black and white terms - good versus evil, victim versus aggressor. From the safety of our European homes we are particularly quick to make moral judgements on situations happening thousands of miles away. From the security of our comfortable lives, we demonise actions we don't understand, and criticise choices we will never have to make. Of course we want justice, of course we want to support the underdog; but yet we are very confused as to who the underdog is. Forty Shades of Grey attempts to get in between this easy black and white scenario that we've been presented with in our traditional media -- and explore the many difficult grey areas that exist in between the black and the white. Funded by The Irish Arts Council and shot on location in Israel and Palestine over the course of seven weeks, Forty Shades of Grey examines not only the obvious problems arising directly from the conflict itself, but also the many internal problems on both sides of the wall. Forty Shades of Grey takes you inside the cramped conditions of Balata refugee camp in Palestine where 25,000 Palestinians live in just one squared kilometre. It examines the ongoing debate as to the state-supported status of the Ultra Orthodox Jews, exempt from army service, and the resulting bitterness felt by their fellow Israeli countrymen. It visits Silwan, East Jerusalem to be tear-gassed and stampeded after Friday prayers, and Sheikh Jarreh to witness the forced evacuation of Arabs from their homes in East Jerusalem. It also delves into the murky world of human trafficking into Israel; how thousands of Sub-Saharan refugees are ending up in criminal Bedouin rape and torture camps in the Sinai peninsula, having thought they'd find a better life in Israel - with the hope that the Jews of all people will understand their plight. Forty Shades of Grey features interviews with academics, politicians, soldiers, refugees - but most importantly the everyday Israeli and Palestinian citizens attempting to live normal lives against the backdrop of our generation defining conflict. In a situation where everybody is right, and everybody is wrong, Forty Shades of Grey dispels the myth that in order to be pro-Palestine, you must also be anti-Israel.
