FILM: “FREEDOM RUNNERS”
Amherst, 2 p.m.
Rotem Genossar, a teacher at the Bialik-Rogozin campus in south Tel Aviv, establishes a running group for his students-young African refugees whose families fled their homeland and now live in Israel without any legal status. At first, running is just a social activity for the students, but it quickly becomes a means to fight for their civil rights, part of the struggle to secure them a place of their own, out of the margins of Israeli society.
