About the Event

Documentary / Israel / Arabic, English, Russian with subtitles / 2020 / 60 minutes  

This inspiring documentary focuses on four years in the life of Muhammad "Misha" Alsheikh, a talented teenage pianist from Ramallah, who is the son of a Palestinian father and a mother who came from Russia. It takes Muhammad three hours to get from his house to a piano lesson with his Jewish-Israeli teacher in Jerusalem. Despite his father's will that he will become a doctor, Misha tries to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional pianist--and also stay happy.

Guest Speaker: Akiva Naiman, West Coast Director of NCSY and Director of the CCJCC's Project Impact.
