16th Annual CAJE Miami Jewish Film Festival

What better way to celebrate a Jewish occasion than to dance the hora? The 16th CAJE Miami Jewish Film Festival opens at the Colony Theater on Saturday, January 26th, with the film "Hava Naglia (The Movie)" that unlocks the history and mystery of the magical song played when Jews worldwide dance the hora. On Tuesday, Jan. 22nd at 6pm, the community is invited to the Michael-Ann Russell JCC in North Miami Beach, to dance in “Miami’s Largest Hora Happening.” As a community, people will celebrate the festival’s “Sweet Sixteen” and dance to the classic tune that has become an integral part of Jewish culture.

The Jewish Film Festival runs from Jan. 26 - Feb 4th, and Ellen Wedner, Festival Director, has created a movie lineup with something to appeal to every age, from a toe-tapping documentary to a feature about finding common ground in a racially charged community. A richly diverse cultural representation – Ethiopian, Israeli, Macedonian, Russian, Dutch, Cuban, French, German, and Argentinean – define the films scheduled. Some of thse films include:

"400 Miles to Freedom", (Israel) a powerful documentary by co-director Avishai Mekonen, who breaks his 20-year silence about the brutal kidnapping he endured as a child in Sudan during his community's exodus out of Africa, and in so doing explores issues of immigration and racial diversity in Judaism today.

"Off White Lies" (Israel) is a charming Israeli film about a father, his daughter and a con game. Libby, an introverted yet sharp-witted teenager, is sent to live with her father, Shaul, in Israel. Her arrival coincides with the outbreak of the second Lebanon war. Libby quickly discovers that her Dad, is an infantile eccentric, and that he is “in-between apartments”. Shaul’s has a creative plan to put a roof over their heads.

Special guest, filmmaker Yassel Iglesias, attends the screening of his documentary "The Chosen Island" (Cuba). In the film, he explores both the history of Sephardim in Cuba and their indelible part of the country’s social fabric. Through interviews with members of the Cuban Sephardic Jewish community, viewers experience the rediscovery and revival of Jewish life there, and listen in as the film raises questions about faith, resilience, strength, and survival. The filmmaker and Festival Director lead a discussion following the screening.

"Kaddish for a Friend" (Germany) tells the heartwarming story of two very different people from opposite sides of a conflict. Surrounded by memories from his past, Alexander, a Russian Jew and World War II veteran, lives alone in the apartment above Ali, a 14-year-old who, with his family, recently moved to Germany from Lebanon. As Ali struggles to fit in, and in an attempt to impress his new friends, he is caught in an act of racial hatred. What happens next is a surprise to everyone, but no one more than Alexander and Ali.

"Room 514" (Israel) is an uncompromising drama that provides a raw, direct look at the psyche of a generation of young Israelis shaped by the effects of ongoing conflict. The minimalist set uses an interrogation room as a metaphor for contemporary Israel. The story follows an idealistic military investigator whose integrity is challenged when she confronts an elite soldier with accusations of unnecessary violence against a Palestinian man in the Occupied Territories. The film received a Special Jury Mention at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Lighter features include the bittersweet romance "Divorce Invitation" featuring Elliot Gould and Lainie Kazan. The story follows Mike, who is happily married to Dylan (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), until he runs into his high school sweetheart, Alex. After all these years, sparks still fly. Determined that Alex is his true soul mate, he realizes he has a huge problem-he signed an ironclad pre-nuptial agreement. Or perhaps, there might be a loophole.

The festival closes with the coming of age film, "Letters for Jenny (Cartas Para Jenny - .Argentina), Opening with a bittersweet Bat Mitzvah celebration, Jenny enters her teenage years after losing her mother to a terminal illness. Her father gives her a series of letters left behind by her late mother to be opened at key moments in her life.

The festival runs from Saturday, January 26 through Monday, February 4. For complete movie listings with film descriptions, times and locations and to purchase tickets, log on to www.miamijewishfilmfestival.com or call 1-888-585-FILM
