The Center for Jewish History will offer a series of films and discussions, entitled "Where Is Home?"
Unfortunately, we've missed the first one on October 25. In Russian with English subtitles, "Roots" is a 2004 comedy directed by Pavel Loungin, which follows the exploits of a Jewish con-artist who turns a small town in provincial Ukraine into a fake site of heritage tourism for unsuspecting Americans.
At 6.30pm November 1, see "Voyages," multi-lingual with English subtitles, directed by Emmanuel Finkel (1999). Three distinct but related sequences, set in France, Poland, and Israel, trace a moving interplay of stories of communion, memory, and language among Holocaust survivors.
At 6.30pm, Thursday, November 8, see "Return to Oulad Moumen" (French with English subtitles), directed by Izza Genini, who uses a family reunion to retrace her large family's history to its small Moroccan village.
Admission is $10; $5 for students/seniors.
