B’nai Brith Canada is teaming-up with award-winning filmmaker Ian Halperin to screen the film “Wish You Weren’t Here”. The film, which explores contemporary antisemitism in our society, offers a balanced perspective on how support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement directly contributes to instances of antisemitism.

The “Wish You Weren’t Here” Canadian tour organized by B’nai Brith Canada will include screenings in Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto, and Winnipeg, and will take place on the same nights Roger Waters is performing in those respective cities. The film is a counter protest to Waters’ ‘Us + Them’ tour
As a human rights organization committed to fighting antisemitism, B’nai Brith believes “Wish You Weren’t Here” is an enlightening and compelling cinematographic experience that succinctly details why the Boycott/Divestment/Sanctions effort is inherently an antisemitic movement.
