Houston Jewish Film Festival: Generation 1.5

Generation 1.5 
Sunday, March 31 | 4:00 PM 
Documentary | Directed by Roman Shumunov  
2023 | Israel | Hebrew and Russian with English subtitles | 80 Min. | Kaplan Theatre

Over one million immigrants from the former Soviet Union arrived in Israel during the 1990’s. Generation 1.5 – those who made aliyah as children and teenager – are now adults, assimilated into Israeli society but still grappling with their identity and sense of belonging in their adopted homeland. This profound narrative of a truly mass exodus follows several immigrants, examining the discrimination they faced, compromises made by their families, and the indelible mark they have made on Israeli society.

Community Partners: Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest; Rice University’s Program in Jewish Studies
