Matzpen film screening and Radio coverage

Matzpen film screening
On July 20, IJSN members in Los Angeles organized a screening anddiscussion about Eran Torbiner’s film Matzpen: Anti-Zionist Israelis.The discussion featured Liliane Cordova Kaczerginski, an IJSNInternational Core member from Paris, France who had been a member ofMatzpen in Israel for much of the 1970’s. A multi-generational andmulti-racial audience of 30 attended the event, the majority of whomhad no previous exposure to the organization Matzpen and the history ofanti-Zionist organizing inside Israel. The lively discussion after thefilm discussed the trends within the Israeli anti-Zionist Left and thePalestinian Left during the period of Matzpen’s activity in the 1970’s,and the relevance of Matzpen for today’s Anti-Zionist and PalestineSolidarity organizing. The event was held at the Workman’s Circlebuilding in west Los Angeles. A most poignant moment was Liliane’smeeting with the Los Angeles Workman Circle’s director, a Yiddishkeithistorian who was intimately familiar with the songs and writings ofLiliane’s father, a famous Lithuanian Yiddish poet and folksong writerwho was also a Communist and part of the underground resistance. t
