"Under the Same Sun" at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19 at Frank Theatres is the story of two businessmen -- one Palestinian and one Israeli -- who struggle to set up a solar energy company that will mutually benefit both of their communities. The movie tells how they overcome hostility from within their own families and neighbors to make this happen.
And the film itself is an example of similar cooperation. It was produced by an Israeli and directed by a Palestinian.

Following the film, there will be a guest speaker from the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies -- an organization that is working in real life to make sure such things happen.

Movie tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the JCC or at the theater one hour before the movie. Please feel free to spread the word among your friends. The trailer for this and the other films, some of which may also interest you, can be viewed at www.yorkjcc.org.
