ARAB-ISRAELI DIALOGUE

Rogosin’s final film, one of a string of shorter works, comprises a spirited debate between the Palestinian poet Rashed Hussein and Amos Kenan, an Israeli anti-establishment public intellectual, artist, and member of the Israeli Council for Israeli-Palestinian Peace, staged in the basement of Rogosin’s own Bleecker Street Cinema. An American Jew driven to confront injustice with his camera wherever he saw it, Rogosin didn’t back away from asking his co-religionists to question what had become of the dream of Israel, providing a forum for two formidable intellects to discuss the fates of their respective nations, and the possibility of peace.
