Some of my Best Friends are Zionists

Some of my Best Friends are Zionists is a documentary that explores the ambivalent feelings of notable Jewish intellectuals when it comes to the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Featured appearances by Judith Butler, Gary Shteyngardt, and Tony Kushner, among others.

Directed and Produced by Columbia English Professor Bruce Robbins. Professor Robbins hired me to be a production consultant. I shot a handful of the interviews, edited a portion of the film, and taught Bruce how to do the rest on his own. The film has screened internationally.
