Circoncision

Monday Movies

France 2000, directed by Nurith Aviv, 52 min., French with German subtitles

Monday Movies: Program Surrounding the Special Exhibition "Snip it!"

Which role is played by the decision for or against circumcision in secular life? In her documentary, Nurith Aviv gives a voice to parents from different cultures who have considered this question. Through discussions about belonging, tradition, and family loyalty, a surprising panorama evolves that time and again frames anew the significance of cultural tradition in a non-religious life.

The film director will attend.
