In cooperation with Keshet Deutschland, the museum will be screening the film Kiss Me Before It Blows Up (German title: Kiss Me Kosher) followed by a discussion with the director Shirel Peleg. The discussion will be chaired by journalist Arkadiusz Luba (Deutschlandfunk Kultur).

In their debut feature film, released in 2020, the Israeli Shira (Moran Rosenblatt) and the German Maria (Luise Wolfram) fall in love. When the two of them decide to get married in Jerusalem, Shira’s grandmother Berta (Rivka Michaeli) tries to block the wedding. For her part, Berta is concealing her yearslong relationship with a Palestinian doctor, Ibrahim (Salim Daw).

Peleg’s comedy plays with stereotypes, prejudices, and cultural misunderstandings, addressing both the German-Israeli and Israeli-Palestinian relationships.
