Atlanta Jewish Film Festival 2018

The 2018 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, running through February 15th, features several acclaimed French films.

Founded in 2000, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival highlights Jewish culture and history, life in Israel, and the work of Jewish artists, particularly where these stories intersect with other communities and cultures around the world. Accordingly, this year’s Festival features French films focused on the Jewish experience.

Mr. & Mrs. Adelman

February 7 &14

The decades-spanning tumultuous romance of a quintessentially French couple is chronicled in the thought-provoking and scathingly funny Mr. and Mrs. Adelman. Told in flashback from the early 1970s forward, and intimately detailing the intricacies of a lifetime of shared highs and lows, this saga of passion, betrayal, tragedy and unexpected twists of fate is co-written by the film’s two stars, Nicolas Bedos and his life partner Doria Tillier. Audience Award winner at the Hamptons International Film Festival and COLCOA French Film Festival.

A Bag of Marbles

February 2-4

Left to fend for themselves in Nazi-occupied France, two Jewish brothers must rely on their courage and cunning to escape Nazi barbarism and avoid capture, in the lavish, family-friendly adventure A Bag of Marbles. In 1941 Paris, with the merciless persecution of Jews underway, young Joseph and Maurice are forced to flee their home and make their way south to the demilitarized zone, their best hope of survival. Aided only by their own ingenuity and the occasional kindness of others, the boys set off on a dangerous mission, overcoming extraordinary odds in hopes of one day reuniting with their family.
