The JCJ is pleased to continue its series of evenings to view and discuss some of the best of Israeli film.
Hosted by Rachel Walzer, a drama teacher and actress who grew up in Jerusalem, these evenings include thought and discussion (in English) on aspects of the film’s story, characters, message and techniques.
The next evening is Saturday, March 9 at 7 pm featuring:
Director: Joseph Cedar
Synopsys: Nominated for foreign-language film Oscar in 2011, Footnote tells the story of Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik, father and son as well as rival professors in the Talmudic Studies faculty. When both men learn that Eliezer will be lauded for his work, their complicated relationship reaches a new peak. A subtle and intelligent film.
Lisa Kennedy of the Denver Post wrote: This tale of two Talmudic scholars set in present-day Jerusalem, while not exactly side-splitting, is quietly riotous. And, yes, the guffaws are bittersweet.
The event is open to JCJ members and guests. Please register in advance with the JCJ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
