 Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

Please join us for an opening night reception (Catered by a local Ba-Li Cravings Israeli Bakery) and a screening of an award winning 2014 Israeli comedy "Zero Motivation". 

"A zany, dark, & comedic portrait of everyday life for a unit of young, female Israeli soldiers. The Human Resources Office at a remote desert base serves as the setting for this cast of characters who bide their time pushing paper and battling in computer games, counting down the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, issues of commitment - to friendship, love, and country - are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit."

This film will be followed up by a "Women at a Workplace" panel immediately after the screening.
