Congregation Beth El Jewish Film Festival Begins March 2, 2019
Join us for 1, 2 or all 6 of these great films!
MARCH 2 - 7:00 pm: "GOOD THOUGHTS, GOOD WORDS, GOOD DEEDS: THE CONDUCTOR ZUBIN MEHTA" Germany, India 2016 English, German, Italian (subtitles); 89 minutes. A documentary that follows the dazzling international career of a musical maestro. Filled with stunning performances and interviews with friends, family, and colleagues. This globe trotting biography is a magnificent tribute to a virtuoso and true believer in the international language of music.
MARCH 9 - 7:00 pm: “ITZHAK” 2017 ‧ Documentary ‧ 1h 23m. "Praying with the violin." The young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student, when schools only saw his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent, and self deprecating. He personifies the resilience, vision, and contribution of the Jewish people.
MARCH 16 - 8:15 pm "LEVINSKY PARK" Israel 2016 Hebrew, English (subtitles); 66 minutes. A documentary about the tens of thousands of refugees from sub-Saharan Africa who are seeking relief and safety in Israel only to find a society bitterly divided on how to treat them.
MARCH 23 - 8:15 pm: "KEEP THE CHANGE" USA 2017 English, 94 minutes. While protagonist David struggles to come to terms with his own high functioning autism, he unexpectedly falls for Sarah, a quirky and outgoing woman whose lust for life both irks and fascinates him. A refreshingly off- kilter story about the ups and downs of romantic life and the rewards of acceptance and mutual trust.
MARCH 30 - 8:30 pm: "THE LAST SUIT" Argentina, Spain 2017 Spanish, German, Polish, Yiddish (subtitles); 86 minutes. In this bittersweet and wistful road movie, 88 year old Abraham Bursztein feels that he’s about to be put out to pasture by his children who have sold his home in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and booked him into a retirement home. Abraham sets off on an adventure halfway around the world to find the man who saved him from Auschwitz.
APRIL 6 - 8:30 pm: “SAND ON THE FLOOR” 57 minutes. The film gives us an intimate look at Jewish life, shedding light on its traditions and mysteries. And in the process, pries at the cracks dividing the Jewish world today. The epilogue documents the role this congregation and its historic synagogue played in the filmmakers’ journey back to Judaism, 49 years after being targeted by a Jewish pedophile.
