Synopsis

The Passengers tells the story of the Ethiopian Jews, and the struggle for this final community to immigrate to Israel. The film follows the journey of two young men as they represent their abandoned community on a fateful mission in America. With intimate access and detailed historical context, we follow the unlikely spokesmen out of Ethiopia for the first time in their lives, as they deal with intense pressure, homesickness and ups and downs of a grassroots campaign, while growing personally from the life-changing journey.


Director Ryan S. Porush will attend the screening.
