Exodus 91 (with BrownWhite)
A hybrid docudrama film that follows Israeli diplomat, Asher Naim, on a seemingly insurmountable mission to bring 15,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. As Asher learns more about these African Jews, he finds himself between worlds and facing a crisis of faith in himself and his country. The docudrama follows the behind-the-scenes politics leading up to Operation Solomon – the two day airlift in May 1991 pulled off in climactic chaos of the Ethiopian Civil War. (Plays with the 11 minute short BrownWhite.) Includes Q&A with director Micah Smith.
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: “Exodus ‘91 is a superbly crafted docudrama of the very harrowing story of the 20,000 Ethiopian Jews airlift to Israel. As told from the actual decision makers, ambassadors, Ethiopian officials, this film is a modern miracle story of Jewish Exodus to the Promised Land. Highly recommend you not miss this powerful film.” Jim Barshop, SAJFF Committee member
