Israeli Filmmaker to Speak at Arts & Lectures Event

The second Arts & Lectures event of the fall semester features Ran Tal, an acclaimed Israeli documentary filmmaker.  

The event is at 6 p.m. on Oct. 3 in the USU Ballroom. The event is free for Cal State San Marcos students, faculty, staff and alumni. Community members can purchase tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website

Tal will screen his 2012 film “Garden of Eden” and discuss his work. The film examines the depths of Israeli society in the least expected place – a national holiday resort – presenting viewers with a fascinating account full of humor, pain and compassion. A recipient of numerous awards in Israel and abroad, Tal most recently won accolades at the 2022 Berlin International Film Festival for his new film “1341 Frames of Love and War,” about photographer Micha Bar-Am. 

CSUSM’s Arts & Lectures series offers a diverse lineup of artistic, cultural and scholarly events every semester based on input and proposals from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Attendees can reserve tickets online via the Arts & Lectures website.
