Karen Russo screening ‘Halls for Single Viewers’ at the Crown Cinema, Jerusalem

The Crown Cinema welcomes its viewers to attend screenings in the COVID-19 era, with three single-viewer screening halls: a momentary refuge of alternative, imagined, or documentary reality, a brief pause from a heady summer season in which the ruling crown is slipping and cracking, the streets of the city are filled with demonstrators, and the world is hanging in limbo and uncertainty. In days in which governmental institutions are collapsing and a pandemic is threatening the familiar paradigms of our existence, the Crown Cinema invites the viewer to to sink into the coolness of the theater and the comfort of its cushioned seats, and at the same time to cast a sober gaze at the reality of our lives; under the seductive cloak of the movie theater, 30 video works by local artists allow us to peer into the cracks – a powerful weapon in times of change. The spectator is invited to choose her/his own hall and screening program. The duration of each program is about one hour. Entrance according to availability. The exhibit was planned as part of the Intersections events at the Jerusalem International Film Festival Participating artists: Adi Kaplan & Shahar Carmel, Amir Yatziv Amitai Arnon & Ester Bires, Ariela Plotkin , Dan Robert Lahiani, Dorel gillerman & Agata wojcierwoska gillerman, Elham Rokni, Galia Galina Lyoloko, Guli Silberstein, Jonathan Doweck, Karen Russo, Leigh Orpaz, Maya Geller, Maya Zack, Naama Shohethet, Nir Evron, Nira Pereg, Shai Ratner, Shir Handelsman, Tal Shochat, Tali Keren, Tamar Shippony – תמר שפוני and Mili Ben Hayl, Thalia Hoffman, Tzion Abraham Hazan ,Sagit Mezamer, Samantha Adler De Oliveira, Yahav Ger, Yaron Attar, Yeshaiahu Rabinowitz, Yitzhak Mizrahi. 13 Aug at 15:00 – 27 Aug at 15:00 https://www.facebook.com/events/945615629183986/
