Thursday Night 2 for 1 at the SJFF

The Seattle Jewish Film Festival continues this week with a bunch of great films. Three of them screen Thursday night and to encourage you to come out, the SJFF is offering you a 2 for 1 deal. Just call the ticket hotline at 206.324.9996 or go to the box office (open 30 minutes prior to all screenings) and say “Get Reel, Is-reel” and you’ll be able to buy two tickets for the price of one.

It’s an excellent deal and you have three excellent movie choices:

Against the Tide, directed by Richard M. Trank and narrated by Dustin Hoffman, is called “a scathing indictment of US indifference to the Holocaust”. Through a never before seen 1977 interview, Peter Bergson, who challenged the isolationism of the Roosevelt administration and American Jewish organizations, provides a first-hand account of his success in attracting the support of non-Jewish congressmen and Hollywood personalities to his cause while establishment leaders resisted action against the Nazis. (3:30 pm)

Michael Verhoeven will be on hand at the screening of his Human Failure to receive SJFF’s 1st Reel Difference Award. Human Failure is an examination of the Third Reich’s tax officials’ expropriation of assets and property – everything from bank accounts to the shirts off their backs – of Jewish citizens who were then expelled or sent to their deaths. (5:30 pm)

Rabbi Firer: A Reason to Question, directed by Amit Goren, is a look at Rabbi Elimelech Firer, “a 54-year-old Orthodox Jew self-educated in medicine” who helps patients “navigate their way through the tangled web of treatment.” Such is his influence that he can “change a patient’s care with a single phone call, often to world-renowned experts in their fields.” (7:00 pm)

All three films play at Cinerama; check out the SJFF site for more details.
