"Killing Kasztner" sounds like an interesting film so it is being added to this meetup group's programming.
Here is a description of the film:
One of the most provocative and acclaimed documentaries in recent memory, this is the shocking tale of Rudolf Kasztner, the Jewish-Hungarian journalist and lawyer who single-handedly negotiated with Eichmann to save 1,600 Hungarian Jews in 1944. But twelve years later, having been accused in an Israeli courtroom of selling his soul to the devil, he was assassinated in broad daylight. Killing Kasztner is a deep investigation into the thorny definition of heroism, the intricacies of Israeli politics and the complexities of Jewish identity.
Winner, Audience Award, Boston Jewish Film Festival.
"[One of the] ten best films of the year.... A fascinating look at a mostly forgotten page of Israeli history." —Jerusalem Post

This film's director, Gaylen Ross, will be in attendance at the showing to lead the Q&A session. If there are enough of us she might be available for dinner or drinks (Elysian Brewing Company two blocks away). Ms. Ross has made several feature length documentaries and shorter films for PBS's Point of View series.
