"THE PASSENGERS/ ON MY WAY OUT" - Presented by LA Jewish Film Festival
THE PASSENGERS
Los Angeles Premiere!
Documentary/Ethiopia, Israel, USA/2019/70 min
Directed by Ryan Porush
English, Hebrew, Amharic with English subtitles   

For centuries, there was a thriving Jewish community in Ethiopia. After the establishment of Israel, thousands relocated there, and now thousands more are fighting to join their families and friends. The Passengers tells the story of the Ethiopian Jews and the struggle to immigrate to Israel. The film follows the amazing journey of two young men, best friends Demoz and Gezi, as they represent their abandoned community on a fateful mission in America. With intimate access and detailed historical context we follow the unlikely spokesmen, out of Ethiopia for the first time in their lives, as they deal with intense pressure, homesickness and ups and downs of a grassroots campaign, while growing personally from the life-changing journey. When the pressure of representing its desperate community builds, the pair must reconcile unexpectedly diverging paths with an uncertain, critical future closing in.

On My Way Out: The Secret Life of Nani and Popi
LA Premiere!
Directed by Brandon Gross, Skyler Gross
Documentary/ USA/2017/40 minutes

All families have secrets. Having survived the Holocaust and tragically lost family members, Roman and Ruth Blank, affectionately known as Nani and Popi have been married for 60 years. They raised a family in America and built a successful business. Now at age 95, a deeply-held secret is revealed: Popi is gay, and finally free to explore his identity and seek the companionship he craves. But the revelation is not without repercussions as the news deeply impacts Nani, and their daughters scramble to understand their parents in a new light. The film, created by the grandsons is awkwardly humorous at moments, and filled with tenderness, but one thing is clear; love is complicated.
