Celebrated playwright Harold Blumenthal has passed away after succumbing to cardiac arrest while laughing at one of his own jokes. Now, Harold's estranged and jealous brother, Saul, must confront his personal hang-ups to deliver himself from an epic bout of constipation. Meanwhile, Saul's wife Cheryl and son Ethan must grapple with their own personal obstacles through a set of circumstances so improbably ironic they might as well have been lifted from one of Harold's plays.




The Heart of Auschwitz

Canada |2010
English |85 minutes
Sunday January 12, 2014  3:30 PM
Adelson Educational Campus

THE HEART OF AUSCHWITZ, a handmade gift for Fania Landau, bestowed upon her in a concentration camp on her 20th birthday, undoubtedly meant more to her than any present because it restored Fania's faith in mankind. Out of utmost love and gratitude, Fania saw no other option than to risk her life by keeping it with her throughout death marches and camp inspections. This enlightening film shares what the human spirit can achieve when there is hope and empathy.

Hannah Arendt

Germany |2012
English and German with English subtitles |113 minutes
Saturday January 18, 2014 - 7:00 PM
Adelson Educational Campus

HANNAH ARENDT is a bio-pic about the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist who reported on the 1961 trial of the notorious Nazi Adolf Eichmann for the New Yorker Magazine. The article was controversial both for its portrayal of Eichmann and for her now-famous concept of the "Banality of Evil." Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, this provocative film turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema.



 
Cupcakes

Israel |2013
Hebrew, French with English subtitles |90 minutes
Sunday January 19, 2014  1:00 PM
Adelson Educational Campus

CUPCAKES is a colorful and outrageously funny Israeli satire on the iconic and kitsch institution: The Eurovision Song Contest. The film follows a group of neighborhood friends as they try to cheer up Anat, who has recently been abandoned by her husband. The troop spontaneously composes a song and as a joke sends it to Eurovision. As luck would have it, the song is chosen to represent Israel. CUPCAKES is set to an infectious pop score and features a cast of some of Israel's brightest stars.




Jews and Money

Canada, France |2013
English, Hebrew and French with English subtitles |96 minutes
Sunday January 19, 2014  3:30 PM
Adelson Educational Campus

Ilan Halimi was abducted, held hostage under barbaric conditions and later died en route to the hospital. His kidnappers had demanded $500,000 in ransom, convinced that since Halimi was Jewish, his family must be rich. In fact, the 23-year-old cell phone salesman came from a modest working-class background. Twenty-seven youth gang members were arrested, their subsequent trial sparking worldwide outrage and exposing the roots of anti-Semitic tension in the African-Muslim immigrant neighborhoods of Paris.




Bethlehem

Israel|2013
Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles |100 minutes
Thursday January 23, 2014 - 7:00 PM
Cinemark Theaters South Point Hotel

One of the most unnervingly lucid films ever made about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, BETHLEHEM shifts between Israeli and Palestinian perspectives to tell a story of secret strategies, precarious alliances, and terrible betrayals. This gripping thriller plunges us into a milieu of family, terror, and espionage to reveal a perpetual atmosphere of paranoia and mistrust that forces everyone to question the loyalty of their own friends and family. BETHLEHEM won Best Picture at the Israeli Academy Awards and has been named Israeli's official selection for this year's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.




The Jewish Cardinal

France |2012
French with English subtitles |96 minutes
Saturday January 25, 2014 - 7:00 PM
Adelson Educational Campus

THE JEWISH CARDINAL tells the true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism and joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II. In this powerful position, he found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from either group. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent in Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator forced to choose a side.



 

Paris Manhattan

France |2012
French with English subtitles |78 minutes
Sunday January 26, 2014  1:00 PM
Adelson Educational Campus

Alice, an idealistic pharmacist, is completely and utterly obsessed with Woody Allen. She's constantly quoting lines from his films, engaging him in imaginary conversations, and even prescribing her customers his classic works to help alleviate their ailments. Alice's increasingly concerned Jewish parents hope to cure her fixation by setting her up with a handsome French gentleman but he quickly realizes that he's no match for the man of her dreams. A romantic excursion through the city of lights, this witty endearing comedy concludes with a special cameo by the original Alvy Singer.

IDA is the story of a young orphan on the cusp of taking her vows to become a nun in a Catholic order. She unexpectedly learns that she has a Jewish aunt named Wanda, whom she visits before making her ultimate commitment to the church. The two women, one an idealist completely naive to the real world and the other a cynic who can scarcely cope with the hypocrisy and inhumanity she's seen, embark on a voyage of discovery where they learn that they can either be trapped by their past or break free from it.
