… of a Very Special Kind
Much more than just two film screenings on the theme „Encounters in Israel“ were on the program for our guests in Berlin on 24 and 25 February 2016. Our motto „I Respect You“ was to become reality through encounters and discussions between people of different nationalities, cultures and experiences. I am sure that I am not the only one to remember these two evenings with their many surprising and emotional moments, which gave cause to reflect.
A warm embrace as thanks from the wife of a Rabbi, a Palestinian film character, who was just as thrilled at the authenticity of the final videos as was a member of the Israeli embassy staff, and an engaged IrespectU team, which dauntlessly found their own manner of respectfully dealing with the strict rules of a foreign culture – these were indeed personal highlights for me.
