The epic film based on the Leon Uris novel stars Paul Newman as Ari Ben Canaan, who smuggles 600 Jewish refugees from the island of Cyprus to British Mandate Palestine aboard a stolen cargo vessel. Eva Marie Saint plays Kitty, a nurse who takes on the Zionist cause and soon falls in love with Ari. Filmed on location, Exodus sparked interest in Israel by bringing its images to millions across the US. Followed by a conversation led by Professor Amitai Etzioni.
