Film Club - "Off White Lies" (Israel)
After years of living apart from her dad, Libby, an introverted yet sharp-witted teenager, is sent to live with him in Israel. Her arrival coincides with the outreak of the second Lebanon war. Libby quickly discovers that her dad, Shaul, is an infantile eccentric and is "in-between apartments" (homeless). Shaul comes up with a creative plan - they pose as refugees from Israel's bombarded north, and are taken in by a well-off family in Jerusalem. Their false identities can't last forever, especially as Libby unleashes tenage fury at the lies permeating her life.
This summer, the Film Club joins the 2013 Adult Summer Reading Program to bring you GroundBreaking Films! All Film Club programs are free and open to the public and are shown in the library’s upstairs meeting room. Selected films may contain objectionable material; therefore Film Club attendance is recommended for adults, aged 18 and over. Coffee, tea and popcorn are provided, and a lively discussion follows each film.
