A new film about Rachel Corrie has brought outrage and threats from sponsors to the SF Jewish Film Festival. We talk with the filmmaker and with the festival director. PLUS: it's been called "nerd-on-nerd violence", but the years-long argument over what really happens in the Black Holes of physics is about our understanding of the entire universe. We talk with the winner. With host Kris Welch, noon to one.
guests: Simone Bitton, filmmaker (Mur, Rachel, etc.)
Peter Stein, exec. dir. SF Jewish Film Festival (from 23 July-11 August)
Leonard Susskind, Felix Bloch Professor of theoretical physics, Stanford; author (The Cosmic Landscape; The Black Hole War)
