Theodore Bikel
October 14th

Portraits of two beloved icons – Sholom Aleichem and Theodore Bikel – are woven together in this enchanting new documentary. The two have much in common: wit, wisdom and talent, all shot through with deep humanity and Yiddishkeit. Sholom Aleichem’s remarkable life and work are showcased in Bikel’s charismatic storytelling and musical performances.
 

A Bag of Marbles
October 21st

Based on Joseph Joffo’s autobiographical memoir, A Bag of Marbles tells the story of the Nazi occupation through the eyes of two young Jewish boys in 1941 struggling to survive on their own. Roman, a barber in Paris, knows that his sons’ best chance to escape the Nazi roundup is to flee on their own to Vichy France, where their older brothers have found safe haven. Always one false step from tragedy, the boys survive on courage, ingenuity, and more than a bit of cunning as they make their precarious way through France to reunite with their family.

 

Shalom Bollywood
October 28th

A celebration of the all-singing, all-dancing history of the world’s largest film industry, Shalom Bollywood, reveals the unlikely story of the 2000 year old Indian Jewish community and its formative place in shaping the world’s largest film industry. With access to rare archival footage, Danny Ben-Moshe’s (My Mother’s Lost Children) new documentary tells its extraordinary tale through the lives of Indian cinema’s Jewish icons at the heart of Bollywood from the turn of the 20th century to the present day.
