About the Event

Watching the Moon at Night – a 90 minute creative documentary with a personal tone, looks at contemporary terrorism and anti-Semitism. 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.
