Celebrating the Unbreakable Jewish Spirit

Wet Dog

Runtime: 1 hour, 43 minutes

★ Tuesday, March 26, 7:00 PM

At The Center on the 4th Floor
Soheil (Doguhan Kabadayi), the 16-year-old son of Iranian-Jewish emigres, moves from a peaceful town in central Germany to the Berlin neighborhood of Wedding, where he experiences anti-Semitism for the first time from his mostly Muslim peers. As a means of self-preservation, he hides his Jewish identity and joins a gang, rising in the ranks as petty crimes lead to drug sales and altercations with police, but always with the constant threat of being found out. Croatian-born German filmmaker Lukacevic transposes Shalicar’s 1990s-set memoir to the present day, driving home the point that bigotry and the impulse to conform are dismayingly perennial.

★ Special programming: Enough is Enough’s Michael Chattah and Michael Harary will be discussing hiding your Jewish identity; being comfortable without being afraid. Refreshments and dairy mazza included.
