Wet Dog

South Florida Premiere

Based on the provocative autobiography, this thrilling, coming-of-age tale follows an Iranian Jewish teenager who, upon moving to a predominantly Muslim neighborhood in Berlin, joins a street gang whose Muslim members harbor anti-Semitic beliefs. Caught between hiding his Jewish identity to save his friendships and continue fitting in with them, or losing everything to live openly as a Jew, there is one thing he knows for sure: his next move will change the course of his life and that of his loved ones forever.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Damir Lukacevic, actors Doguhan Kabadayi & Mohammad Eliraqui, and moderator Rabbi Adam Gindea, director of Base Miami. To view the conversation please click here.
