A valiant 96-year-old woman, Miriam Weissenstein, fights real estate developers in Life in Stills to keep alive the Photo House in Tel Aviv, which holds 1 million negatives documenting the history of Israel. Stubborn and opinionated, Weissenstein is also enormously funny, even when bickering with her beloved gay grandson, Ben, who is helping her save her shop. 2012 Ophir (Israeli Oscar) winner! Special guests: Director Tamar Tal and film subject Ben Peter. In Hebrew, English and German with subtitles.

Life in Stills screens at 7:30 PM, Wednesday, Nov. 7 at the Coolidge Corner Theatre and at 7 PM, Monday, Nov. 19 AMC Framingham. Plenty of tickets remain for Framingham.

Sponsored by Northeastern University Jewish Studies Program, International Affairs Program and Department of History and Metrowest Jewish Planning Committee.

Get two films for the price of one.

May 1948. With independence declared, Israel was immediately under siege from six armies. Outnumbered and out-armed, Israel asked for international help. The documentary 804 tells the little-known story of the 804 South Africans in The Machal, volunteers from outside of Israel.

Ameer Abu-Ria is not your typical Israel Defense Forces member in the documentary Ameer Got His Gun. He’s a Muslim Arab who volunteers to serve in the military. Regarded as a traitor by many Arab citizens and an enemy by many Israeli Jews, Ameer remains a total optimist: smart, gregarious, a friend to all he meets in the army.

804 and Ameer Got His Gun screen at noon, Monday, Nov. 12 at Coolidge Corner Theatre.


We Are Not Alone

Eddie, a security guard at a shopping mall, keeps his distance and has limited friendships as he prepares for the end of the world in the Israeli film We Are Not Alone. Then he meets May, a down-and-out fellow loner with a dubious past, who is squatting at the mall. This quirky, endearing love story stars Ohad Knoller (Srugim, Yossi and Jagger). Directorial debut of Lior Har-Lev. Note: brief nude scenes. In Hebrew with subtitles.

We Are Not Alone screens at 9:15 PM, Saturday, Nov. 17 at Theatre 1 at Revere Hotel Boston Common.

How far should an Israeli soldier go to defend his/her homeland? The depends whether you're Anna, an idealistic military police interrogator, or her tough-guy commander boss, accused of brutality against a Palestinian, or a morally-conflicted whistle blower in the Israeli film Room 514. Fans of Hollywood's A Few Good Men (1992) will be excited to see this Israeli counterpart. 2012 Ophir (Israeli Oscar) Best Actress nominee. Special guest: Director Sharon Bar-Ziv. In Hebrew with subtitles.

Room 514 screens at 7 PM, Thursday, Nov. 8 at Coolidge Corner Theatre and 3 PM, Sunday, Nov. 18 at West Newton Cinema. Plenty of tickets remain for Coolidge Corner show.

In Spanish with subtitles.

All In screens at 9:30 PM, Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Coolidge Corner Theatre and at 1 PM, Sunday, Nov. 18 at West Newton Cinema. Plenty of tickets left for Coolidge Corner show.

When Assaf’s parents discover women’s clothing under his mattress in the Israeli film Melting Away, the teen is forced to move out. Assaf becomes a woman, Anna, singing at gay bars in Tel Aviv at night and pretending to be a nurse by day. Anna’s mother searches for her “son” after her husband is diagnosed with terminal cancer in this tender, fulfilling story. In Hebrew with English subtitles.

Melting Away screens at 7:30 PM, Thursday, Nov. 8 at the MFA.

Sponsored by Consulate General of Israel to New England.

A Gala thank you!

A big thank you to all who came and supported Bedazzled & Betrothed, our annual Gala, last Saturday. We had a great night of fun, food and film, while honoring actress Annette Miller, restaurateur Jim Solomon and Boston Jewish Film Festival Board President Joyce Pastor. Director Doug Block showed his work-in-progress 112 Weddings. The night was a great kick-off to The Festival.
