Kaddish for a Friend

The Cincinnati Jewish & Israeli Film Festival, sponsored by Mayerson JCC, is having a three-night Summer Cinema series — Tuesday through Thursday — at the Cinemark Oakley Station. Tuesday's film, Diane Kurys’ For a Woman, is a drama about a woman who finds troubling secrets in her parents' World War II-era histories. Wednesday's film, a favorite at the most recent festival, is Leo Khasin's Kaddish For a Friend about a Palestinian youth's relationship with a Russian Jewish man in Berlin. It is based on real events. Thursday's screening is of Run Boy Run, based on the Holocaust novel by Israeli author Uri Orlev and directed by Pepe Danquart, about an eight-year-old on his own in Nazi-occupied Poland. 


Films screen at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per film and must be purchased in advance at  mayersonjcc.orgtmp_1403187443536  Cinemark Oakley, 3025 Disney St., Oakley, mayersonjcc.org.
