Anne, a dedicated history teacher at a French high school, is determined to give the best education she can to her underprivileged, multicultural, inner-city students.  Frustrated with their apathy but undaunted, she tests them with a unique assignment: a national competition on the theme of child victims of Nazi concentration camps.  The project is initially met with extreme resistance until a face-to-face encounter with a Holocaust survivor changes the students’ attitudes dramatically.  The film demonstrates the enduring impact of the Holocaust in transforming future generations.

The Second Time AroundThe Second Time Around
Monday, March 20 at 1:00 p.m.

Katherine Mitchell (Linda Thorson, The Avengers), a widowed yet vibrant senior, wasn’t looking for love a second time, not at her age, and certainly not with cranky Isaac Shapiro (Emmy winner Stuart Margolin).  Katherine had fractured her hip while attending the opera and reluctantly moved into a seniors’ lodge to convalesce.  Here she meets Isaac, a cynical, ex-tailor who complains about the food and drinks on the sly, but, Katherine finds, shares her love of music. When Katherine finds out that Isaac is diagnosed with a treatable cancer, they leave the lodge and move in together. This heartwarming love story for the “ageless” is full of hope, dreams and second chances.

Director: Leon Marr / Canada / English / Running time: 107 minutes

Life AnimatedCLOSING NIGHT
Life, Animated
Monday, April 3 at 1:00 p.m.

Several years ago Ron Suskind, an American Pulitzer Prize-winning  journalist and author, was a featured speaker at Jewish Book Festival. He told us the story of his son Owen, who as a thriving 3 year old, suddenly and inexplicably went silent. For years after, Owen could not connect with others or convey his thoughts or feelings, until the family discovered a unique way of communicating through Disney classic films.  When Suskind was at the J discussing his book, Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism, he said it was being made into a film. We are thrilled and proud to present the film, Life, Animated, as part of this year’s Jewish Film Festival.

Life Animated, interweaves classic Disney sequences with realistic scenes from Owen’s life, to explore how his identification and empathy with characters like Simba, Jafar and Ariel allowed him the means to understand his feelings and interpret reality.

Director: Roger Ross Williams / United States / English / Running time: 89 minutes
