26th Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival

The Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival is a program of the Independent Jewish World Cinema.

12:00am: Mango Dreams
As a child, Dr. Amit Singh (Ram Gopal Bajaj) survived the British partition of India. Since then, he has been running forward his whole life, running from the horrors of his past-his family murdered by Muslims. Now, with the onset of dementia, Amit wants to return to his childhood home and confront the memories he has been trying to forget. But before his journey begins, he encounters Salim (Pankaj Tripathi), a Muslim auto-rickshaw driver whose wife was killed by Hindu rioters. When Amit asks to be driven home, Salim cannot imagine where the journey of a thousand miles will lead them. A profound, mesmerizing film with stellar performances.

12:00am: Muna II
With a knockout performance by Mouna Hawa (In Between), this 8-episode dramatic series (Muna I and Muna II) focuses on the life of Muna, a 30-something Israeli Arab photographer, who has been invited to display her work in Paris. Although this exhibition is a great honor, she is hounded by both Arab and Jewish critics. Then there’s the complicated relationship she has with Yaniv, her Jewish boyfriend, and her father’s anger at her for not adopting a traditional lifestyle. A bold look at Israeli Arabs that you’ve rarely seen before. (Muna II is Episodes 5-8).
