Miami Jewish Film Festival presents Concerned Citizen
January 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
SOUTHEAST US PREMIERE. Winner at the Jerusalem Film Festival, Concerned Citizen centers on Ben and Raz, a young, attractive, financially secure gay couple, ready to take the next step in their relationship in the form of having a baby through surrogacy. On his work computer, Ben designs the housing and social architecture of the future, and outside his apartment, Ben plants a new sapling. But this act of ever-so-subtle gentrification to the street outside his apartment soon leads to a tragic series of events for the refugees living in the building. Concerned Citizen is a challenging parable for our times, with themes as relevant to contemporary Tel Aviv as it is to Miami. Winner of the Best Screenplay Prize at the Jerusalem Film Festival, Israeli director Idan Haguel’s film is a morally complex, refreshingly smart dark comedy about personal responsibility and the uneasy balance between assuming the identity of a “concerned” citizenry and the adoption of a victim complex.
All LGBTQ+ community members and allies are invited to celebrate the richness and diversity of our Miami Jewish community at this special screening. At 5:15 pm, join the YLD Pride Happy Hour at Palace Bar (1052 Ocean Drive).
