Melton Alumni Event: Crescent and Star-Crossed Lovers: Jewish-Muslim Romance Films

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 10am
Astor Judaica Library
Lawrence Family JCC
For decades, Jewish Christian love stories have challenged or exalted the romantic ideal that love can transcend cultural or religious differences. Today, the cinematic trope of the unlikely Jewish-Christian couple has been supplanted by that of the Jewish-Muslim couple. Dr. Baron's lecture compares and contrasts four star-crossed lover plotlines to either affirm or discredit generalizations about the intractability of Israeli-Palestinian and Muslim-Jewish relations. The presentation will include clips from contemporary films including David and Fatima and Don't Mess with the Zohan.

Instructor: Dr. Lawrence Baron
