It's midterm mania in Central Canada, but there is still lots of programming in the region! Recently, Hillel Winnipeg screened Unsettled. Shira Meged, Israel Affairs Chair of Hillel at the University of Manitoba, shared her thoughts on the movie and the event:
"Unsettled is a riveting documentary about Israels withdrawal from Gaza in 2005. The story follows a group of young Israelis as they face, process, and experience the withdrawal from competing angles. This film does a commendable job of portraying the different experiences and thoughts of Israeli soldiers, workers, and civilians during this point in time and offers a deep and insightful snapshot of the emotional whereabouts of the people on both sides during this controversial moment in Israel’s recent history.

The night was an immediate success when pro Israel group board members from each school shared and presented past accomplishments and future endeavors.
