Filmmakers Talk | Miriam Harris 

Today, a conversation with filmmaker Miriam Harris from New Zealand on her film Visiting Ben Shemen, which is selected for the International Short Film Competition during SHIFT Film Festival 2022. The short film is about three young Jewish teenagers who met at the Palestinian Ben Shemen school, after the Holocaust and WWII. Now in their late eighties they recount the ways in which Ben Shemen offered a healing and soul-nourishing refuge.
