Sandy Itkoff, producer of Defamation, discusses film director Yoav Shamir's personal and global search for a better understanding of anti-Semitism. Shamir seeks reactions from the man in the street to opinions about anti-Semitism posed by experts. And the filmmaker seeks answers to basic questions as well: "When we are talking about anti-Semitism, what do we mean? What is anti-Semitism in a daily sense? Does it take different forms in different places? How serious is it? Is there a 'new anti-Semitism?' Is being an Israeli detachable from being a Jew?"
