Celebrating 17 Years of the Best Jewish and Israeli Films
New promising, entertaining and exceptional award-winning films are featured in this annual festival, which brings Jewish lives and stories to the big screen. With venues across town, the Festival, now in its 17th year, shines the spotlight on Jewish and Israeli culture, art and history.
My Name is Sara
Directed by Steven Oritt
USA, 2019, 111 minutes
Based upon the wartime experiences of the producer’s mother, My Name is Sara is an extraordinary story of survival. Fleeing the Nazis, she takes the name of a Christian classmate and finds work on a farm with a family who has secrets of its own. On more than one occasion, she is close to being revealed as an imposter, but her mental fortitude, grit, wit and determination save her. Beautifully acted by newcomer Zuzanna Surowy, her character says little; her face says it all.
