THE ARIEL BREAKFAST CLUB 

Student Films from Ariel University Center Exploring Unlikely Student Encounters

   

Everyone remembers and loves the John Hughes classic "The Breakfast Club" about high school students from different socio-economic backgrounds who reconcile stereotypes of each other when sitting in detention. What happens if a similar scenario occurs in Israel-if you take students-religious and secular, left-wing and right-wing, rich and poor-and make them sit in a room together? Three acclaimed student films written and directed by graduates of Ariel University Center in Israel explore political, religious and class differences among Israeli students.
