The following films will be screened:

  • tiger inside: This film, set in Los Angeles, tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a cynical homeless teenager and a Holocaust survivor, and although it is largely a drama in pairs, it introduces us to the larger issues of fear, courage, forgiveness, and healing. Featuring multiple Emmy Award-winning Ed Asner in one of his final performances, it presents us with a masterful conclusion to his formidable acting career. Plays Monday, April 25 at 8 p.m.
  • love was not: The result of years of research, this film is remarkable not only for its unusual central story and unique creative execution, but also for its extensive eyewitness accounts. Plays Tuesday, April 26 at 2 p.m.
  • Neighbors: This film looks back to the 1980s on the childhood memories of a middle-aged man who was then a seven-year-old boy in a tiny Kurdish village on the Turkish-Syrian border. Only one Jewish family remains in the village after the increasingly hostile policies of the ruling Syrian Baathist party. The film is largely told through the vision of little Sero, who is attending school for the first time. Plays Tuesday, April 26 at 5 p.m.
  • Berenchtein: There are war films so true and so honest that we know we have a vision of the truth, not an adventure film or a thriller to glorify a hero or glorify the fight itself. Plays Tuesday, April 26 at 8 p.m.
  • Kiss me Kosher: This movie is a very engaging comedy that successfully walks the fine line between hilarious and heartbreaking. Plays Wednesday, April 27 at 2 p.m.
  • Betrayed: The film tells the true story of the Braudes, a family from Oslo of Lithuanian origin, most of whose members were eventually arrested and deported to Auschwitz. Plays Wednesday, April 27 at 5 p.m.
  • A starry sky above the Roman ghetto: A “Starry Sky Above The Roman Ghetto” is an engaging film for all ages. Plays Wednesday, April 27 at 8 p.m.
  • Another story: This film, based on an Israeli bestseller, tells the story of Jordan Gat, a successful, young and sharp journalist who dreams of having her book published and is ready to do anything to achieve it, even by transforming her best friend , Adam , frustrated bachelor and hopeless romantic, as a guinea pig. Plays Thursday, April 28 at 2 p.m.
  • Valiant Hearts: What makes this film different is that it is based on the true story of the rescue of six Jewish children in August 1942 who took refuge in a most unlikely place. Plays Thursday, April 28 at 5 p.m.
  • We are here: This Israeli drama beautifully explores the relationship between father Aharon and his son Uri, an autistic young man in his twenties. Plays Thursday, April 28 at 8 p.m.
