Jerusalem is Proud to Present
Presented by the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival

Guest Speaker: Russell Murphy, Co-president of InterPride and witness to the events in this film

In the summer of 2006, Jerusalem was to host the World Pride events, which were to culminate in a gay pride parade. The planned events stirred turmoil in the politically complex city, with Jewish, Muslim and Christian religious leaders banding together in an uncompromising battle against what they said would defile the holy city. On the other side stood Open House, Jerusalems LGBT community center. Steadfast in the face of anti-gay sentiment, they had to deal with threats to much more than just their right to march. They and their relatives began to receive death threats and gay Jerusalem City Council Member Saar Netanel was singled-out for abuse. Director Nitzan Gilady had access both to the march organizers and their opponents. This skillfully crafted film demonstrates the conflicts between democracy and religion in perhaps the most heated setting in the world. Israel, 2007, 80 min.
