About the Film:
Director: Rose Bosch
France, Germany, Hungary, 2010 115 min. French, German, Yiddish w/English subtitles
A selection of the 9th Annual Temple Emanu-El Kirk Cashmere Jewish Film Festival.
Based on a true story. In 1942, Paris police arrested 13,000 Jews before sending them to Auschwitz. With this tragic, taboo chapter in France’s history as the backdrop, the film focuses on Joseph Weismann, a charming 11-year-old boy (he’s now 80) whose friends, family, and close-knit community gave each other hope and strength to endure their terrible reality. Starring Jean Reno.
Burl Burlingame, Honolulu Star-Advertiser journalist, will introduce the film and be available for a Q+A after screening on February 19 at 7:30pm.
