"J STREET: the documentary"
Ken Winikur - Producer / Director
Ben Avishai - Producer / Director
Jeremy Leach - Cinematographer
Tim Raycroft - Editor
About the Production:
"As American Jews, the conflict between the
Israelis and the Palestinians is a deeply resonant issue for us. Like
many, we are at a loss as to why a final two-state solution cannot be
achieved. Amidst this backdrop we began to hear rumblings of a new group
that was emerging called J Street. We've followed J Street with
extraordinary access, filming behind-the-scenes during high-level
strategy meetings, long nights on the road, and at speaking events—some
of which see J Street representatives accused of being traitors and
anti-Semites. What emerges is a complex portrait of democracy at work." -- Ken Winikur
