Film Screening: Watching the Moon at Night

A new film by award-winning filmmakers Joanna Helander and Bo Persson

Watching the Moon at Night – a 90 minute creative documentary with a personal tone, looks at contemporary terrorism and antisemitism. Filmed in six countries, Watching the Moon at Night focuses on the victims’ experiences and juxtaposes them against the views of world experts in this field. As a result, the film goes far beyond the stereotyped perception of terrorism.

Walter Laqueur, former director of The Wiener Library and the world-renowned German-Jewish historian, who left his native Breslau for Palestine on the day before Kristallnacht 1938, is one of the inspirations for Watching the Moon at Night. He is also an important participant in the film which explores the many faces of contemporary terrorism, its frequent connections to antisemitism, and its roots in the history of 20th century political violence.

The film will be accompanied by a Q&A with filmmakers Joanna Helander and Bo Persson.
