GARDEN SATURDAY Q&A @ 7PM | Hosted and curated by Oscar winning director Barry Jenkins

Much has been written and filmed about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict: dense, intellectual writing seeking to resolve history into policy. Set in the eponymous Garden, a red-light district in the filmmakers’ hometown of Tel Aviv, wife and husband directing team Ruthie Shatz and Adi Barash’s GARDEN chronicles the days and nights of two Palestinian male sex workers, Nino and Dudu. Misplaced, used, disused and discarded, GARDEN’s subjects are those who often have little say in the policy shaping their lives. Here, in Shatz and Barash’s empathic hands, aesthetic rigor is fused with true feeling to empower a society’s forgotten citizens in an uncommonly expressive film that provides a startlingly clear window into the lives of men often hidden from view. (Israel, 2003, 84m) In person: Adi Barash, Ruthie Shatz
