Behind The Silence
Silvio Katz is 49 years old. He works as a cook in the kitchen of a poor school from the Buenos Aires province. He had a harsh past. He fought at the Falklands War and suffered torture at the hands of an anti-Semitic sub-lieutenant. Silvio kept silent for many years but something happened in his life which led him to speak up and after 30 years of silence his story finally came to light, became famous and caught the whole of society’s attention. Behind Silvio’s silence there is a family story: a father who survived the Holocaust and a tradition to keep silent in the face of traumatic situations. Nonetheless, Silvio opts for a different path to lead his life and he tells us his terrible story along his hardships’ companion: war veteran Roque Arrieta inviting us to think over the silence kept by victims of torture who have survived these situations.

Into Truth: Cracking
The Jewish Riddle Clearly, humanity never stops developing. But with each passing year the final destination of its evolution is becoming more and more elusive. Could there be a root cause at the heart of all the contemporary world ailments? How can the human race transform the relentless crises that threaten its very future into opportunities for growth? What is the place of the Jewish people in this simmering pot and what can explain the worrying rise in anti-Semitism witnessed around the globe?
These questions and many others are clearly and logically answered one by one by the man who is fast becoming the world authority on the wisdom of Kabbalah, Rav Dr. Michael Laitman. This is a rare intimate documentation of Dr. Laitman spanning the last five years of his work leading up to his dramatic meeting with the Jewish population of the west coast of the U.S.
