An AJFF alum and star-studded addition to the canon of cinematic dance flicks land in theaters this month. Then some classics, and under-the-radar classics are arriving on various streaming platforms. It's a perfect blend of the old and the new, plus one very honorable mention for what's not Jewish about it?
We’re incredibly proud that AJFF attracts some of the most talented, passionate people. This past summer, long-time AJFF volunteer and board member Sari Earl took over the presidency of our board of directors. She will hold this position for the next two-years, having previously served as vice president and chair of the community engagement committee.
A much loved AJFF alum hits theaters again this month, as does an incisively fresh doc on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Meanwhile, on streaming, Netflix and Hulu showcase some incredible films, from a is-it-true Holocaust documentary, to the poignant and intimate romance between Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams as Orthodox Jewish women. There's also a drama set against the one percenteres of New York, and a look at the life of megamogul David Geffen.
Reality TV collides with the (former) ultra-Orthodox lifestyle on Netflix. Meanwhile, some AJFF alums join certified classics on streaming and Blu-ray. Plus the late, great Charles Grodin's arguable best film lands on Netflix and Amazon.
A year in the life of an Israeli gay couple, on their way to parenthood, plays out in Double Income, Kids. The documentary, from filmmaker Hendrik Schäfer, follows the men who want twins. To both become fathers, they enlist the help of an American surrogate mother.
It’s a month for reconnecting with classics, from 1980s Best Picture to a modern remake of a Mel Brooks classic, with plenty of quintessentially Jewish filmmaking in between. Plus new indie gems hit theaters.
