Film festival posters depicting a drawing of a woman vandalized in Jerusalem
Festival director defends depiction of woman riding bicycle, calls vandalism 'anti-Jewish.'
Posters depicting a drawing of a woman riding a bicycle were vandalized during the weekend, as part of an ongoing struggle in Jerusalem concerning female figures in the public domain. The figure of the woman in the posters, wearing a dress and holding a bouquet of balloons, was torn out or painted white. The posters advertise the upcoming annual Jerusalem Film Festival due to open next Thursday.
