“The Other Son”
A film by Lorraine Levy.
With special guest, award-winning filmmaker and director of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, Lexi Leban. Q & A following the movie.
Two families divided by fate, united by understanding.
As he prepares to join the Israeli army for his national service, Joseph discovers he is not his parents’ biological son, but that he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yassin, the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank. This revelation turns the lives of these two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, their values and their beliefs.
“The Other Son waters the seeds of empathy in our hearts as we ponder the miracles that can happen when we walk a mile in another person’s shoes and truly desire to understand the broader context of another’s life.”–Spirituality & Practice
