The annual Buffalo International Jewish Film Festival offers a look into the history of films as they pertain to the Jewish experience. These heavy hitting films deal with life and death, family, relationships, peace, love, freedom and war. Get ready to laugh, shout and even shed a tear.
In 2017, there are two exceptional films with Buffalo connections: Bagels over Berlin and Les Yatzkan. Plus, four shorts from the Ma’aleh School of Television and Film in Jerusalem.
This collection of films tells the tales of some of the most inspiring and unforgettable people and events in the history of the world. At the same time, they preserve moments and messages for generations to come.
Ask any young person these days what television shows Norman Lear produced, and you would probably get a blank stare. At the same time, his shows were some of the most influential in the history of the medium.
Bagels Over Berlin – Director Alan Feinberg, originally from Buffalo, will appear at the March 17 and March 20 screenings to introduce the film and talk about its making.
