Aimee & Jaguar, a special screening presented by LA Jewish Film Festival & Laemmle Theatres
Discussion IN PERSON with renowned German actress/director MARIA SCHRADER (Director of "Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe" (LAJFF 2016)

Special introduction by the honorable Consul General of Germany, Mr. Hans Joerg Neumann
(Mr. Neumann is completing his term in Los Angeles and this screening is in honor of his service and commitment to the LA Jewish Community)

In 1943, while the Allies are bombing Berlin and the Gestapo is purging the capital of Jews, a dangerous love affair blossoms between two women. One of them, Lilly Wust ("Nowhere in Africa" star Juliane Köhler), married and the mother of four sons, enjoys the privileges of her stature as an exemplar of Nazi motherhood. For her, this affair will be the most decisive experience of her life. For the other woman, Felice Schragenheim (Maria Schrader), a Jew with an alias and member of the underground, their love fuels her with the hope that she will survive.

A half-century later, Lilly Wust told her incredible story to writer Erica Fischer, and the book, AIMÉE & JAGUAR, first published in 1994, immediately became a bestseller and has since been translated into eleven languages. Max Färberböck's debut film, based on Fischer's book, is the true story of this extraordinary relationship.

The film was nominated for a 1999 Golden Globe Award and was Germany's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. Both actresses received Silver Bears at the prestigious Berlinale Film Festival for their portrayals of "Aimée" and "Jaguar." With an outstanding score composed by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek (Oscar-winner for Best Film Score for "Finding Neverland.")

Two-time winner of the German Film award and two-time winner of the Bavarian Film award, MARIA SCHRADER worked with directors such as Margarethe von Trotta, Peter Greenaway, and Agnieszka Holland (co-starred in "In Darkness").  In addition to winning a Silver Bear at the Berlinale for "Aimee & Jaguar", she thrilled television audiences in the Emmy award-winning series "Deutschland 83" (2015). "Deutschland 86" will premiere in October, 2018. In 1998,  Maria co-directed "The Giraffe" with Dani Levy ("Go For Zucker"). She directed "Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe" in 2016 and was nominated for Best Director at the German Film Awards.
