Black Mercedes

Warsaw, 1941. The body of a beautiful young woman, the wife of a prominent lawyer, is found in a pool of blood on the couple’s kitchen table. Investigating the case, a Polish police detective is led to the Nazi-occupied city’s underworld, where fake identities, corruption and sex create a menacing and dangerously seductive atmosphere. Fusing classic film noir motifs with a disconcerting vision of a sieged city, Black Mercedes is a wholly unique whodunit murder mystery.

The story of the investigation to unravel the mysterious death of a beautiful young woman in Nazi-occupied Warsaw. She is not Krystyna Holzer, as stated in her kennkarte (German-issued identity document), but a Jewess kept hidden by a Pole - a polonized Saxon - attorney Karol Karlzer. Before the outbreak of war, the woman was his student as well as the object of his unrequited love. The case is assigned to Detective Chief Inspector Rafal Król, an officer of the so- -called Blue Police under the control of the German occupiers, but also a soldier of the Polish underground, sworn to execute his orders. It is a suspenseful story set in the faithfully-recreated reality of occupied Warsaw and Zakopane.

Cost: $12

Camp Kadimah

Since 1943, for six weeks every summer, Jewish children have gathered on the shores of Lake Willam, Nova Scotia at Camp Kadimah. As they pulled together through generations of song, spirit and tradition, they shaped a community that would shape their lives forever. Through interviews with alumni from every decade, vintage film and memorable music , this film shows the history of Camp Kadimah from its earliest days to the present . It also tells the story of the Jewish Communties of Atlantic Canada; how they came from Europe to settle in Canada and why Kadimah was founded.
