the places where these things actu-
ally happen:' Fox explains. "I [also]
insisted on shooting in Isawiya and we
went to shoot in Isawiya, and you can
imagine shooting there."
With the same commitment to
fidelity and realism, Fox shot at the
Breakfast Club, a hot nightclub near
Sheinkin Street, as well as in cafes and
restaurants in the area.
Every Israeli filmmaker is asked
political questions when they take their
movies abroad to festivals and give
interviews, and Fox has mixed feelings
about being a de facto spokesman for
Israel. He enjoys sharing his opinions,
especially as an outspoken gay man,
but like every artist he prefers that his
films speak for themselves.
That poses its own dilemma, for The
Bubble is a personal, deeply felt work
that reflects Fox's values and yet will
inevitably be viewed more broadly in
the U.S. as a film about Israel.
"I care about what people think
about Israel, and I want them to see the
whole picture, the bad and the good,
the beautiful and the ugly,' Fox declares.
"On some issues and on some levels,
we're so conservative and so backwards,
so full of fear and racism and paranoia
against Arabs, Palestinians, Russians,
foreign workers.
"But we have this ability to embrace
other minority groups. The women's
situation in Israel is wonderful; the
gay situation in Israel is wonderful!"
It's all but impossible to squeeze
that whole picture into, well, one pic-
ture. But Fox packs quite a bit of it
into the The Bubble, giving moviegoers
more than enough to chew on after the
lights come up. I I

The Bubble screens 7 p.m.
Thursday, Oct.18, as part of Reel
Pride Michigan, a gay and lesbian
film festival running Oct.12-19 at
the Landmark Main Art Theatre,
118 N. Main St., in Royal Oak. For
information, a complete schedule of
events and more than 50 films, and
tickets, call (248) 537-7000 or visit
www.tri.org .
Other films of Jewish interest
include:
For the Bible Tells Me So (Sunday,
Oct.14; 10:30 a.m. brunch fol-
lowed by 11:30 a.m. film). Wielding
whimsical animation and a proudly
unapologetic point of view, this
film explores the intersection of
conservative religious belief and
homosexuality in America today,
concluding that, perhaps, hatred is
the greatest abomination of all.
Out at the Wedding (Sunday, Oct.
14 at 4 p.m.). In Manhattan, Alex
gets engaged to Dana and tells him
that her entire family is dead. The
truth is that she doesn't think her
South Carolina clan will accept a
Jewish, African-American in-law.
When she attends the wedding of
her high-maintenance sister, her
best friend unwittingly starts a
rumor that Alex is gay and Dana is
a woman.
The Last Visit (Tuesday, Oct.16,
at 9:30 p.m., during Girls Night
Out!, a series of short films for
women). While introducing her lover
to her grandmother, a musician
contemplates the Jewish diaspora
and finding peace; this is a five-
minute short by observant Jewish
lesbian filmmaker Bee Sack.
