-Luz and Ido (screening March 3, 2013) explore the insurmountable difficulties of two families: a secular one, whose son becomes orthodox, and an orthodox family whose adopted daughter leaves the religion;

-Storm of Emotions (screening March 17, 2013) documents the complexity of the unilateral Israeli withdrawal from Gaza in 2005.
