12TH ANNUAL JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
1/27 – 2/6

The 12th ANNUAL SAVANNAH JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL IBEGINS WEDNESDAY JAN 27TH AND RUNS THRU SATURDAY FEBRUARY 6TH.    12th SAVANNAH JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL PROMISES TO WHET APPETITES FOR MORE   It has been said that food is intrinsic to Judaism, both religiously and culturally, and a quick glance at the schedule for the 12th Joan and Murray Gefen Memorial Savannah Jewish Film Festival, running January 27th through February 6th, seems to bear that out. “It was never our intention for there to be a food theme – well, maybe on one day,” said Festival coordinator Lynn Levine, “but there were just a number of really enjoyable films to choose from this year that seemed to have something to do with food. But we’re very proud of the entire schedule of films that provides a diverse audience a cinematic experience they can relate to, appreciate and learn from,” she went on to say.    The Savannah Jewish Film Festival will open on Wednesday, January 27th, with Remember, the new film from acclaimed director Atom Egoyan. Starring Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau, Remember is a thriller that tells the story of an Auschwitz survivor with rapidly-deteriorating dementia, who, with the aid of a fellow survivor, goes in search of the man responsible for the death of his family. The screening is timed to coincide with International Holocaust Remembrance Day and will be preceded by an Opening Night Reception.                Join us the next day for the Savannah Jewish Film Festival’s first-ever “Foodie Day.” In the afternoon, Philadelphia restaurateur Michael Solomonov, chef and owner of Zahav, takes us In Search of Israeli Cuisine via a multi-cultural tour of Israel’s gastronomical delights. Later we will be showing Deli Man, the documentary that has had mouths watering and tummies growling at film festivals all over the past year. Of course, no one has to worry about being hungry when watching these films because the Festival’s ever-popular luncheons and dinners are back – themed to go with these films!                 Ever wonder what would happen if a little cannabis were added to the challah Dough? Jonathan Pryce stars in this heartwarming story that is selling out at Jewish film festivals all over the U.S. An aging London Jewish baker and his young Muslim assistant struggle to save a sinking bakery in the Saturday evening feature on January 30th. Don’t miss this huge hit.    Also to be featured in the 2016 Savannah Jewish Film Festival (January 27th – February 6th):
100 Voices: A Journey Home – A musical documentary that tells the history of Jewish culture in Poland through the personal reflections and musical selections of a group of cantors and acclaimed composer Charles Fox (Killing Me Softly, I Got A Name) who made an important, historical mission to the birthplace of cantorial music. (Sunday, January 31st)
            Apples from the Desert – A timeless tale of tradition vs. modernity, Rebecca and her family must come to grips with her choices when she leaves her observant home and community for a secular kibbutz. (Tuesday, February 2nd)
            The Green Prince – Palestinian Mosab Hassan Yousef grows up angry and ready to fight Israel. Arrested for smuggling guns, he's interrogated by Israel’s Shin Bet and sent to prison. But shocked by Hamas's tactics in the prison and the organization's campaign of suicide bombings outside, Mosab agrees to spy for Israel. For him, there is no greater shame. For his Shin Bet handler, Gonen, there is no greater prize: "operating" the oldest son of a founding member of Hamas. (Tuesday, February 2nd)
The Last Mentsch – Marcus Schwarz escaped Auschwitz with his life, only to exterminate his Jewishness. He has done such an effective job of creating a new identity that, when faced with his own mortality, the rabbis refuse his appeal to be buried in a Jewish cemetery. Determined to return to his birthplace and establish his ancestry, Marcus enlists the help of a brash Turkish woman with a troubled history of her own. The unlikely duo sets out on a road trip that will irrevocably change them both. (Thursday, February 4th)
            Touchdown Israel – With 11 teams and over 600 amateur players, including Arabs, Christians, secular and Orthodox Jews – even Palestinians – American-style football in Israel is thriving. Filmmaker Paul Hirschberger captures the surprising camaraderie among these weekend warriors who sideline their differences for the sake of teamwork and love of sport. (Thursday, February 4th)
            Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did for Love – Composer, conductor, genius, mensch, Marvin Hamlisch was as close to a modern day Da Vinci as it gets. Hit after hit... The Way We Were, Nobody Does It Better, The Sting, Chorus Line, Marvin was irrepressible and prolific. What was his creative process? What struggles did he endure to realize his triumphs? This film vividly captures 'the way he was'. (Saturday, February 6th)
            The Savannah Jewish Film Festival is held in the grand auditorium at the Jewish Educational Alliance, 5111 Abercorn St., in midtown Savannah (just near the intersection of Abercorn and Derenne Ave.).
