Opening Film
Sunday, March 20, 2:00PM
JCC MetroWest's Maurice Levine Theater
Available for virtual viewing via Elevent from March 20 - March 26

Actress and now director, writer, and composer Aurélie Saada steeps this emotional drama in love for her North African Jewish roots. Legendary French actress Françoise Fabian stars as a recent widow nearing 80 whose sorrow gives way to a realization that there is still time for her to redefine herself as a woman and emerge from under her children’s suffocating concerns.





Don’t miss your chance to see our carefully curated Jewish and Israeli films of 2022 at New Jersey’s premier Jewish cultural celebration—both virtually and in-person.


The film viewing will begin on the date listed. All films will be available via the Elevent platform for one week virtually, including those being offered in-person.
