SJFF 2022 In Person | Shorts Program: “When We See Ourselves”
March 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
SEE + BE SEEN SHORTS PROGRAM: “WHEN WE SEE OURSELVES”
Curated by Warren Etheredge, artistic director/co-founder of Walla Walla Movie Crush Shorts Film Festival
In-Person Screening: Thursday, March 31 | 6:30 pm | UW Hillel
In Judaism, the “evil eye,” ayin hara in Hebrew, is the superstitious belief that a harmful energy is created when one looks at something with envy, judgment, or ill feeling. But how do we as Jews, a critical and self-reflective people, deal with the negative gaze of others? Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “You wouldn’t worry about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.” This shorts program examines how we perceive ourselves and our character and how we struggle mightily to alter others’ perceptions of us.
Event: Join us for a film discussion with program curator Warren Etheredge as part of the in-person screening. FREE for current UW students.
Guest: Program curator Warren Etheredge of UW Cinema & Media Studies and Artistic Director/Co-founder of Walla Walla Movie Crush shorts film festival.
