through March 29
Jacob Burns Film Center
Continuing to feature wonderful new films from around the globe, we’re showing, from Hungary, Ferenc Török’s 1945, a complex and highly lauded portrait of a society trying to come to terms with the horrors they’ve experienced; and Nabil Ayouch’s (Horses of God) timely, engrossing narrative Razzia, which explores the forbidden desires and fragile dreams of five Moroccans living in Casablanca today. The festival centerpiece is GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II, which tells the truly remarkable story of 550,000 servicemen and women. And this year we’ve tried to schedule more screenings of some of the films that are certain to be extremely popular, such as the fabulous new documentary Bombshell, about the surprising life of Hedy Lamar.
All this plus a very special showcase of the work of iconic actor Alan Arkin!
Please plan to join us—and our wonderful slate of guests—throughout the festival.
