About the Event
The Oakwood Inclusion Coalition invites you to attend a moderated, in-person discussion of Golda (2023), the new film about Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. The discussion will take place in the Community Room at the Wright Memorial Public Library on Monday, September 11, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. Admission is free and open to all.
Golda is now being shown at The Neon, 130 E. 5th Street, Dayton, for one week only (August 24-31). See The Neon's website (https://www.neonmovies.com/movie/golda/) for show times and additional information.
From The Neon: “Golda is a ticking-clock thriller set during the tense 19 days of the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir (Helen Mirren), faced with the potential of Israel’s complete destruction, must navigate overwhelming odds, a skeptical cabinet, and a complex relationship with US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (Liev Schreiber), with millions of lives in the balance. Her tough leadership and compassion would ultimately decide the fate of her nation and leave her with a controversial legacy around the world.”
Dr. Matthew Gordon, Professor of History and Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University, and a former Oakwood resident, will lead the discussion, inviting exploration of topics addressed in the film as well as their connection to the broader history and conflicts that have made Israel and that region of the Middle East a dynamic locus of global affairs and international politics.
