About the Film:
There is a war against democratic values and the foci of that war is the Jewish state; but this is not just a war against the State of Israel. This current political assault is against the Jewish people and their right to self-determination. Jews are facing a threat much greater than a military threat in the battlefield or a traditional terror threat in our urban centers. Jews are facing the possibility of the uprooting of the very idea that there should be a nation state of the Jewish people.
UNMASKED JUDEOPHOBIA is a meticulous examination of rising anti-Jewish ideology. Filmmaker Gloria Greenfield travels from Israel to Europe to North America, covering this phenomenon from all angles, including historical Christian and contemporary Islamic polemics against Jews, the proliferation of anti-Israeli bias in academia and cultural institutions, misinformation campaigns and state-sanctioned denials of Israel’s right to exist. Wide-ranging interviews include such eloquent and respected voices as Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, Senator Joe Lieberman, former UN ambassador John Bolton, human rights activists Natan Sharansky and Irwin Cotler, British attorney Anthony Julius, Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, Middle East senior fellow Caroline Glick, British journalist and blogger Melanie Phillips, and Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon, among many others.
UNMASKED: JUDEOPHOBIA is a call to action and urgent reminder that antisemitism is a menace not only to Jews, but to the human condition itself.
