My Terrorist

$8/$4. By Yulie Cohen Gerstel, 2002 (58Â’)Israel: Ideal and Reality Series. Yulie Gerstel was wounded in a 1978 terrorist attack. Twenty-three years later, she begins to question the causes of violence in the Middle East and considers helping to release her attacker. The shock of 9/11, and the war on terrorism casts doubts over her one-woman human rights campaign to facilitate reconciliation between the Palestinians and Israelis. This provocative film is a testimony to human compassion, and a call for peace. Preceded by: Zoo Story. Abdullah, a young Palestinian, has been working at the Bible Lands Zoo for five years and is now a caretaker there. The film explores the difficulties he and his Israeli friends have had to overcome to get to know each other. Israel, 2000, (12Â’). (I Am/You Are Project). Speaker: Charles B. Strozier, John Jay College/CUNY.

"Asesino"

$8/$4 for students and seniors. By Nurit Kedar, 2002, (59’)Lens on Latin America.

The film looks at the tragedy of loss and how Israel’s relationship with Argentina may have kept it from playing a greater part in interceding on behalf of the country's Jewish population. Preceded by: Memories of Argentina's Dirty WarStories of death, disappearance and the dissolution of a society during the 1973-1982 junta. Director: J. Knoop and S. Muñoz, U.S.A., 1998, (14’).

"The Jewish Catalog: 30th Anniversary"

$10.00. Curated by Daniel Asa Rose. Informally referred to as the "Whole Earth Catalog of Judaism”, what made it different from all other Jewish reference books of its time was that, in addition to covering the background and theory of all aspects of ritual life, it covered the practical side as well. The “Jewish Catalog”, in its light-hearted scholarship, as well as in its straightforwardly joyous approach, was nothing short of revolutionary. Participants include Catalog writers: Richard Siegel, Executive Director, National Foundation for Jewish Culture, Sharon Strassfeld, and Rabbi Michael Strassfeld, Society for the Advancement of Judaism.

As chief of the interpretation section, he had conversations with everyone from Hermann Goering to Hitler's secretary. Returning to America after the war, Mr. Sonnenfeldt studied electric engineering at John Hopkins University.

"Jews in Berlin"

Free. The editors of "Jews in Berlin" are three of the leading Jewish voices in Germany today. As they plainly state in the preface to this volume, today's official Jewish Community is neither in the tradition of nor in continuity with the Jewish Community as it existed in 1938. Today, even with 100,000 Jews,little remains of the Berlin that was a European/Jewish cultural metropolis where Jews were an integral part of the society. Will they ever again be integrated into the life of the city? The answer, according to the editors, is delicate and complex. Their perspective is especially relevant as it is informed by the optimism of survivors as well as by the burden of personal history.

$7.00/$3.50 for Students and Seniors Sponsored by YIVO Institute For Jewish Research. Initially banned from French TV, because it revealed shocking truths about the French collaboration with the Nazis, this documentary chronicles the role played by the Eastern European Jewish refugees in the Resistance in Paris. As desparate young men with little to lose, they carried out the most dangerous assignments, assassinating Nazis on the metro, or in broad daylight in the street. The filmmaker reveals, however, that there is considerable evidence that many of them were betrayed to the Nazis by their French comrades. Narrated by Simone Signoret. Director: Mosco Boucault, France, 1984, 84 mons., French with English subtitles.
