Virtual Cinema: The Passengers

Directed by: Ryan S. Porush
72 Minutes, 2019, Documentary

Available to stream August 21-28, 2020.

The Passengers tells the story of two men caught between two worlds—the land of their birth and the land of their faith. They are Ethiopian Jews, members of a community who speak Hebrew, keep kosher, and have Israeli relatives, yet Israel continues to deny their appeals for aliyah—the birthright of Jews around the world to immigrate to the Jewish homeland. These two young men, Demoz and Gezi, embark on a daring journey in their desperate search for a path to their true home, the one they have never seen.
