A multimedia presentation, discussion and film screening with Sam Ball (Citizen Film), Zander Berkeley Liberty (refugee, storyteller), Richard Buxbaum (UC Berkeley School of Law, Boalt Hall) & Francesco Spagnolo (curator, The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at UC Berkeley).

You have minutes to flee your home. What do you take with you? In the next installment of the Jewish Film Institute's "Talk Amongst Yourselves" series, refugee storytellers explore their prized possessions in short films about narrow escapes and expansive dreams. This special evening at the Contemporary Jewish Museum will be live-streamed for a national audience. Purchase tickets to join us in person or tune-in to the live-stream on November 30!
