Following the success of her Emmy-award winning film Forever Pure, director Maya Zinshtein delivers another revelatory documentary, this time exploring the unlikely connection between Israel and American evangelical Christians. Following the trail of Yael Eckstein, President of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, Zinshtein examines Yael’s fundraising and coalition-building efforts with evangelical pastors in rural United States and the influence their communities wield in Washington.
An illuminating exploration of how political, financial and messianic interests intersect, ultimately reshaping American policy towards Israel and the Middle East.
Live Zoom Q&A Sunday February 28 at 3pm, with Director Maya Zinshtein and Producer Abraham Troen.
Moderated by Derek Penslar, The William Lee Frost Professor of Modern Jewish History at Harvard and the Samuel Zacks Professor of Jewish History Emeritus at the University of Toronto
