Spike Jonze Ditches Festival after Ceasefire Implodes

Jewish-American film director, Spike Jonze, arrived in Israel on Monday in honor of Israel’s film festival. Lee met with Israeli filmmakers participating in the competition and traveled to Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv.

Jonze was supposed to give over a master class for all those participating in the festival, but in light of the failed ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, he decided that would be “inappropriate,” and cancelled the event.
