Starring Academy Award Winner Martin Landau, Paul Sorvino & Maria Dizzia

In this touching comedic drama and final film before his death earlier this year, Martin Landau plays Dr. Abe Mandelbaum, who finds himself in a nursing home with his seriously ill wife. Here he strikes up an unlikely friendship with an Italian gambler and womanizer, bonding with him over shared sexual issues. Into the picture comes a young nurse who claims her biological father lives in the home. This comic and sensitive view of life’s last hurrah shows it is “never too late for life.”

Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators
Narrated by Sam Waterson

Monday, April 16 • 1:00 p.m.

Since 1941 when the first Curious George book was published, this lively little monkey has delighted countless children with his antics. Combining original animation, photographs, interviews and archival materials, the documentary film, Monkey Business, explores the extraordinary lives of Hans and Margret Rey, the creators behind this beloved character.

The Reys (both Jewish) grew up in Germany and married in 1935. They honeymooned in Paris and barely escaped Nazi-occupied France, but they got out thanks to Hans’ creativity and some makeshift bicycles. Pedaling for miles to the South of France, they finally made it to the United States by way of Portugal and Brazil. Safely in America, the Reys sold their original Curious George manuscript and the adventures began.

Israeli film and television Academy Award for Best Documentary 2017

In the great depths of the Spielberg archives, six hours of interview footage was discovered of one of modern history’s greatest leaders – David Ben-Gurion, the founding father of Israel. The interview was in 1968 and he is 82 years old and he is living in his secluded home in the desert, removed from all political discourse.  Ben-Gurion’s introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his clear voice provides a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel.

Director Yariv Mozer / Israel, France 2016 / Hebrew & English with English subtitles / Running time: 61 minutes
