We Were the Others

This documentary traces the lives of six gay men born during the establishment of the state of Israel, from the time when homosexuality was illegal and considered a mental illness, until 1979, when a number of brave people went to the Kings of Israel Square to demonstrate for their rights. Brought to the community through a collaboration between the Riverdale Y, Congregation Tehillah, and Keshet. We Were the Others will be followed by a talk-back with Sariel Beckenstein, one of the men featured in the film.
