The Hearing

CONCEIVED BY Renana Raz :: DIRECTOR Guy Ben-Aharon :: FEATURING Lonnie Farmer*, Maureen Keiller*, Melinda Lopez*, Patrick Shea*

A high school student complains about their teacher expressing leftist views in the classroom, and the teacher is called in for a hearing with a representative of Education Ministry, the Principal and a secretary. This is the true story of Adam Verete who – after opening a dialogue about the morality of an army in a public high school in Israel – was not only forced to resign, but was publicly threatened and humiliated.
