Westchester Jewish Film Festival 2019
Apr. 2–17, 2019
This year we feature 42 entertaining, thought-provoking, and engaging films about the Jewish experience around the world: a robust mix of narrative, documentaries, and—continuing our tradition of bringing you some of Israel’s fantastic television programming—all 12 episodes of the hit comedy series The New Black (Shababniks) and all five episodes of the dystopian drama Autonomies. Films, which come from Israel and beyond, cover topics from accountability to compassion to what it means to be human—documentary lovers won’t want to miss Carl Laemmle¸ and if you’re drawn to imaginative drama, you’ll love Transit. Other highlights include Shoah: Four Sisters by the late Claude Lanzmann, which reveals stunning footage he couldn’t use in his epic 1985 masterpiece Shoah. The festival centerpiece is Golda’s Balcony, the Film, a cinematic event about Golda Meier’s extraordinary life and legacy, featuring a stellar performance by Tovah Feldshuh, who will be with us for a post-screening discussion on April 6. And there’s also very special tribute to the singular Carl Reiner! It all kicks off with not one but two unique programs on opening night.
