Gloomy Sunday

Monday, May 10, 7:30 pm - Friday, May 14, 11:59 pm

18 years ago, Gloomy Sunday was the Opening Night film of JCC Rockland's first Jewish Film Festival. To celebrate our Chai Anniversary, we are bringing back this beautiful and moving film which will end our 18th Annual International Jewish Film Festival.

A hit song during the 1930s, recorded most famously by Billie Holiday, the evocative "Gloomy Sunday" was notorious for allegedly driving people to suicide. Now it's the inspiration for this marvelous film, a love story with a twist. Gloomy Sunday flashes back from the 1990s to the early 1930s in the lush and romantic city of Budapest, where three people are caught in a love triangle.

Closing Night Sponsors: Crowne Plaza Hotel, Suffern-Mahwah; Susan & Arnie Garelick; Gwen & Steve Rosenzweig
