NewsindiaTimescom, "Depicting the paradoxical loss of
values in a consumerist society." elsbro.diaryland.com , "A
modern day comedy with ancient origins." Le Monde, "A
joyous expressiveness makes this small film a happy sur-
prise." L'Humanite, "Serious themes are treated here with
ferocious and disconcerting humor."

In the village of Entshongweni, far from western civiliza-
tion, young James is chosen to undertake a pilgrimage
to holy Jerusalem. But Israel is not exactly the Holy Land
that James and his people imagined and James is
jailed and destined for deportation,

Then a stranger posts bail for him, but his savior turns out
to be someone who rescues illegal migrant workers in
exchange for employing them at jobs Israelis won't do,
turning James' journey into a ride through the heart of
Israeli capitalism. This film is funny and touching, but with
a heart of steel.

A film from the distributors of last year's Academy
Award winning Nowhere in Africa,

Speaking of searches, a group of
Americans find themselves in New
Zealand on the first night of Passover.
So in (of all places) Christchurch, they
begin a search for matzos. Made by
Lorin Fink of the San Jose Jewish Film
Festival, this is the first of today's two
search films. You compare.

Wherever we go we look for other Jews, or
Jewish things. How do we live, how did we live,
etc.?
