DIRECTOR: Joseph Dorman, Oren Rudavsky TUESDAY FILM SERIES
COLLIDING DREAMS recounts the dramatic history of one of the most controversial, and urgently relevant political ideologies of the modern era. The century-old conflict in the Middle East continues to play a central role in world politics. And yet, amidst this fierce, often-lethal controversy, the Zionist idea of a homeland for Jews in the land of ancient Israel remains little understood and its meanings often distorted. COLLIDING DREAMS addresses that void with a gripping exploration of Zionism's meaning, history and future.
Directed from the center-left with an ear to parties on both sides of the West Bank separation barrier, it's knowledgeable and unhysterical, openhearted without seeming naive. Those on the extremes will probably hate it.Ty Burr, Boston Globe
Refreshingly well-balanced, Illuminating, provocative, vital and engaging. You'll never look at Zionism the same way again.Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
