September 21, 2016 Odhalený Izrael / Undressing Israel

Odhalený Izrael / Undressing Israel
Wednesday, September 21, 2016, 19:15 – 21:00
Kino Mladosť, Hviezdoslavovo nám. 17, Bratislava

Premietanie filmu a diskusia, ktoré sa uskutoční v rámci festivalu izraelského dokumentárneho filmu KolNoa, ktorého organizátorom je Veľvyslanectvo Štátu Izrael v Slovenskej republike. Spoluorganizátor večera je nezisková organizácia Diversity Pro.

Undressing Israel: Gay Men in the Promised Land | Izrael | 2012 | 46 min. | anglicky, hebrejsky | slovenské a anglické titulky | scenár: Michael Lucas | réžia: Michael Lucas a Jariv Mozer

Mnoho ľudí si spája Izrael len s vojenskými konfliktmi, či so starodávnym náboženstvom. Židovský štát však nie sú len rakety a modlitby. Vo svojom režijnom dokumentaristickom debute Michael Lucas, inak producent filmov pre dospelých (Lucas Entertainment) a politický komentátor, skúma tvár moderného Izraela, ktorá je často prehliadaná: jeho prosperujúcu gay komunitu. Odhalený Izrael prináša rozhovory s pestrou vzorkou miestnych mužov, vrátane poslanca Knessetu, trénera, ktorý ako otvorený gay slúžil v armáde, mladého arabsko-izraelského novinára a dvojicu oteckov vychovávajúcich svoje deti. Lucas s kamerou zachytil aj pulzujúci nočný život Tel Avivu a svadobné ceremónie párov rovnakého pohlavia v tejto komentovanej prehliadke krajiny, ktorá sa stala priekopníkom gay integrácie a rovnosti na Blízkom a Strednom východe.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PO PREMIETNUTÍ FILMU PREBEHNE DISKUSIA V SLOVENSKOM JAZYKU.

Hostia diskusie: Ran Karpo Prince, Peter Karpo Prince.
Moderátorka: Katarína Kohýlová (Diversity Pro)

Posvätné miesta na území Štátu Izrael majú špecifické historické a symbolické postavenie v judaizme, kresťanstve a islame. Takmer 75% obyvateľov Izraela tvoria Židia, ktorých národnú identitu definovalo práve náboženstvo. Ďalších 20% spoločnosti tvoria moslimovia, ktorých postoj nielen k homosexualite (ale napríklad aj k postaveniu žien v spoločnosti), je známy svojou konzervatívnosťou.
Ako sa žije a pracuje gejom, lesbám a transexuálom v Svätej zemi? Aké je postavenie a legislatíva týkajúca sa neheterosexuálnych menšín v Izraeli? Odpovede môžu byť pre Slovákov veľmi prekvapujúce.

=================================================
Movie screening and discussion are held during Israeli Documentary Film Festival KolNoa, which is organised by Embassy of the State of Israel in Slovakia. This evening event is co-organized by NGO Diversity Pro.

Undressing Israel: Gay Men in the Promised Land | Israel | 2012 | 46 min | English, Hebrew | Slovak and English subtitles
written by Michael Lucas, directed by Michael Lucas and Yariv Mozer

When many people think of Israel, it is often in terms of modern war or ancient religion. But there is much more to the Jewish state then missiles and prayers. In his debut as a documentary filmmaker, adult-film entrepreneur and political columnist Michael Lucas examines a side of Israel that is often overlooked: its thriving gay community. Undressing Israel features interviews with a diverse range of local men, including a gay member of Israel's parliament, a trainer who served openly in the army, a young Arab-Israeli journalist, and a pair of dads raising their kids. Lucas also visits Tel Aviv's vibrant nightlife scene-and a same-sex wedding-in this guided tour to a country that emerged as a pioneer for gay integration and equality in the Middle East. The discussion with the same-sex Slovak-Israeli male couple is following the screening.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DISCUSSION after the movie screening in SLOVAK LANGUAGE.

Guest speakers: Ran Karpo Prince, Peter Karpo Prince
Moderator: Katarína Kohýlová (Diversity Pro)

Sacred places in the territory of the State of Israel have specific historic and symbolic importance in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Almost 75% of Israeli population consists of Jews whose national identity was defined by religion. Additional 20% of inhabitants are Muslims, whose attitude toward homosexuality is usually very rigid. How it is to be gay, lesbian or transgender in the Holy land, then? What is the status and recognition of LGBT minorities within the society and in the workplace? The answers may be very surprising for the Slovaks.
