The 37th San Francisco Jewish Film Festival kicks off on July 20th, and we are proud to co-present two films on this year’s schedule.

 

Red Trees

Red Trees
Tuesday, July 25 // 4:20 PM
Castro Theatre // 429 Castro Street, San Francisco
$15.00 General Admission

Red Trees is an exquisitely filmed essay that chronicles the life of the Willers, one of only twelve Jewish families to survive the Nazi occupation of Prague. The film chronicles that chronicles the family’s life in the Czech Republic, their narrow escape from the death camps and eventual emigration to Brazil; it is both a testament to the human will to survive as well as a celebration of diversity and acceptance.

Red Trees will also play at 2:15 PM on Friday, August 4 at the Albany Twin.

Death in the Terminal

Death in the Terminal
Wednesday, July 26 // 12:00 PM
Castro Theatre // 429 Castro Street, San Francisco
$15.00 General Admission

Death in the Terminal is a gripping, Rashomon-style documentary is devoted to unpacking what happened in the span of 18 fateful minutes on October 18, 2015, when gunfire erupted at the Beersheba bus terminal. Winner of numerous awards in both Israel and Europe, it is both an absorbing film as well as a trenchant reminder that in moments of anger and panic the truth can be obscured by fury and fear.

Death in the Terminal will also play at 4:00 PM on Thursday, August 3 at the Albany Twin.
