Film Screening: Footnote

Joseph Cedar
1120 Susquehanna Hall
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM

The Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies and The Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies Present:

A Screening  of the Academy-Award Nominated Film Footnote,(2011)with its director/writer Joseph Cedar.

Appearing on a panel with Profs. Eric Zakim (SLLC), Bernard Cooperman (History) and Rachel Manekin (Jewish Studies).

The panel discussion will commence at approximately 5:45

Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are both eccentric professors, who have dedicated their lives to their works in Talmudic Studies. The father, Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and has never been recognized for his work; while his son, Uriel, is an up-and-coming star in the field who appears to feed on accolades, endlessly seeking recognition. Then one day, the tables turn. When Eliezer learns he is to be awarded the Israel Prize, the most valuable honor for scholarship in the country, his vanity and desperate need for validation are exposed. Uriel, meanwhile, is thrilled to see his father's achievements finally recognized but, in a darkly funny twist, is forced to choose between the advancement of his own career and his father's. Will he sabotage his father's glory?
