For A Woman  

Opening night for the Jewish film festival

Westchester Jewish Film Festival 2014

Based on the acclaimed French filmmaker Diane Kurys’ (Peppermint Soda, Entre Nous) own family history, this is the story of a young writer who discovers a surprise among her mother’s keepsakes and embarks on a journey into her parents’ secret past. This beautifully crafted historical drama presents a uniquely personal take on the emotional fallout of World War II.

Opening Night w/Reception

If anyone would like to go for coffee before the film, we will  meet at 5:45 - 6:25 at Starbucks

This event will sell out before the date.  Please purchase your ticket ahead of time if you wish to attend.  Tickets may be purchased online or at the Burns box office.  $10 for members and $15 for non members.   The $2.00 suggested event fee is not for the cost of the ticket, but an event fee to help with the cost of meet up. 

Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK BEFORE THE FILM.  After the film we will meet again at the reception upstairs. When you enter the Burns lobby go to the left it is by the stairs.  This will be a crowded event so please arrive early.  If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meet up group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.

    Here's a film review you might find interesting. I would have loved to understand more about why this film was selected to open the Jewish Film Festival. Although I really enjoyed it, there wasn't too much direct focus on Judaism. Anyone have any thoughts on the symbolism behind Sacha hiding his gun in the tallis bag?

    I really enjoyed this movie, although I had questions afterwards it was a good movie to discuss with my film fanatics. Great reception and event. Thank you to the Jacob Burns Center.
