Sunday, October 21, 2012 - KOH Film Club presents "Footnote" (nominated for best foreign language film of 2011) . Hillel Damron will lead us in a discussion of the film after we view it. The film will be shown at 2 p.m.  $5 suggested donation. A short description of the film is below:

The story of a great rivalry between a father and son, both eccentric professors in the Talmud department of Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The son has an addictive dependency on the embrace and accolades that the establishment provides, while his father is a stubborn purist with a fear and profound revulsion for what the establishment stands for, yet beneath his contempt lies a desperate thirst for some kind of recognition. The Israel Prize, Israel's most prestigious national award, is the jewel that brings these two to a final, bitter confrontation.
