CIMMfest 2011: KMS - African Jews
KMS: African Jews
Documentary, Israel, 48 min., US premiere
Directed by Moran Ifergan

A trio of Ethiopian Jews living in an Israeli ghetto use rap music to create a common identity and address the poverty and discrimination they face every day from white Israelis. Ifergan's probing, personal film catches amazing verité footage, both of galling instances of outright discrimination against the protagonists and of KMS's prickly resistance to well-meaning but subtly racist attempts by mainstream Israelis to build cultural bridges.

With: "R. Luke Dubois: Running Out of Time" (short doc about experimental composer, USA, directed by H. Paul Moon) and "Bring Yourself" by Oh My God (music video directed by Dan Bigelow)
