Closed Season (Ende der Schonzeit) - NCJF's Jewishfilm.2013
Screening at West Newton Cinema
NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
On a remote farm in the Black Forest during WWII, a German peasant couple Fritz (Hans-Jochen Wagner) and Emma (Brigitte Hobmeier) allow a young Jew named Albert (Christian Friedel) to hide and work on their farm despite their own anti-semitism and Nazi patrolmen amongst their peers. In this intimate, intense psychological drama, hidden motivations emerge and power dynamics tighten and shift. Charged with eroticism, emotional intrigue and unexpected twists, the film is bookended by poignant scenes set in 1970s Israel starring Rami Heuberger (Dear Mr. Waldman, JF2007).
