On October 13, filmmaker Eliyahu Ungar-Sargon will be in Evanston (just outside Chicago's north border) to screen his documentary CUT: Slicing Through the Myths of Circumcision, as part of a free national tour sponsored by TheWholeNetwork.org.
The 70 minute film takes a critical look at the usually unquestioned practice of infant circumcision from a Jewish perspective, sifting through expert religious, scientific, and ethical evidence. CUT challenges viewers to confront their biases by asking difficult questions about this long-standing oft-misunderstood practice.
For the ethics panel afterward. We've got the room until 10pm. Hear some of the prior discussions surrounding the screenings: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-cut-podcast/id452165277
