Yaniv–When a Bronx high school slashes its arts funding, the affected teacher concocts a scheme to save the department and its production of “Little Shop of Horrors” by entering the dangerous world of Yaniv… a card game played “behind closed doors” by Orthodox Jewish gamblers. This madcap and absurd comedy unpacks Jewish identity, male friendship, and public education, all in one lighthearted package. The film’s director, Amnon Carmi, and screenwriter, producer and actor, Ben Ducoff, will be with us to talk about their film and teach us how to play and score and win at Yaniv!
