JCC Jewish Film Festival 2019
Thursday, October 10, 2019 @ 1:00 pm & 7:00 pm
The Jewish Community Center Sonoma County Presents the 24th Annual Jewish Film Festival 2019, October 10 thru November 12.
The Festival kicks off Thursday, October 10, with The Keeper.
Against a backdrop of British post-war prejudice, a German SS soldier and POW signs to the Manchester City football club. A real-life legendary goalkeeper, Bert Trautmann’s joining the team causes outrage to thousands of soccer fans, many of them Jewish. Support comes from an unexpected direction: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis. Bert is supported by Margaret, an Englishwoman, whose love carries him through victory, serious injury, and tragedy. The Keeper raises tough questions about forgiveness and the power of sports to unite. Best Production Winner at the 2019 Bavarian Film Awards.
