Sat, Nov 13  7:30 PM
JCC Manhattan
334 Amsterdam Avenue at West 76th Street, New York, NY, 10023


The Israeli Business Forum of New York and The Other Israel Film Festival are pleased to invite you to its a screening of the Israeli Office-HA’MISRAD. Based on the original series created, written, and devised by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchan, the Israeli adaptation of The Office is a microcosm of Israeli society, where an orthodox woman, Arab man, Russian immigrant, and gay man work under one roof with a useless, non-pc boss.

Uzi Weil, the prolific writer of the show has created some of the most talked about Israeli TV shows in the last 15 years. His books and TV shows have influenced a generation of writers, and redefined the boundaries of satire in Israel. Amongst his best known works: The 1990 book The Day They Shot the Prime-Minister, which predicted the Rabin assassination long before anyone thought such a thing is possible; the scandalous TV sketch shows The Chamber Quintet and The Strip; The top ranked Be'Tipul.
