Description:

Produced by Doïna Harap, a Montreal documentary maker, this film deals with the subject of visually "reading" the body language of the terrorist. It is the first documentary to date which incorporates neuroscientists, autism specialists and psychoanalytic thinking concerning the developmental problem that terrorists bond through violence and are not developing empathy early in their lives. The documentary specifically portrays airport security at Ben-Gurion International Airport. The detection of terrorists attempting to penetrate airport security is crucial for tourism sustainability. This film will be screened and followed by a discussion with Ms. Harap and Dr. Nancy Hartevelt Kobrin, Psychoanalyst, Arabist and Counter Terrorist Expert as well as Fellow at The American Center for Democracy. This special event is part of the 31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Israel Studies, hosted by the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
