AULCIE & COLLEYVILLE PREVIEW
August 6; 2:00 PM; Marketplace Cinemas; Free
AULCIE is the incredible story of Aulcie Perry, an African American basketball player who hailed from the violence-filled streets of the 1960s Newark, NJ, and who found his glory in leading Israel’s Maccabi basketball team to the 1977 European championship. He became an overnight sensation in Israel, beloved by the fans and by his adopted country. He converted to Judaism and became an Israeli citizen, and his highly publicized relationship with Israeli
supermodel Tami Ben Ami became the subject of relentless media attention, making him one of Israel’s biggest stars. But his success wasn’t enough to save him from the descent into drugs and jail time, before finally finding redemption. At the time of his troubles, his family was living in North Carolina. Our special guest for the screening is director Dani Menkin. Along with the screening of AULCIE, Dani will show a sizzle reel from his new documentary, COLLEYVILLE, about the hostage situation at the Texas Synagogue where Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker of Winston-Salem’s Temple Emanuel was one of the hostages. Rabbi Charlie will participate in an on-stage discussion with Dani.
