Egon Schiele: Death and the Maiden.
In German with English subtitles. Free admission. Best suited for adult audience.
Join us for an Austrian biographical film on the life of controversial Viennese artist Egon Schiele. His erotic expressionistic paintings were inspired by his sister Gerti and later on by 17-year old Wally, who Schiele immortalized in the painting "Death and the Maiden." While Schiele's radical paintings scandalized Viennese society, daring artists and art agents saw genius and inspiration.
The movie starts at 2 p.m. We'll meet a little earlier inside the 3rd floor auditorium. It runs 1 hour 50 minutes and is shown with no ads. Afterwards, we can go to a casual restaurant across the street to socialize and discuss the movie, which was released in 2016.

The small Jewish community in "The Women's Balcony" is a tight-knit one. When they talk, they don't say "I," they say "We." They are not just a community, they are a "congregation," with all that that implies to the faithful. A huge box office hit in Israel, the film was written by Shlomit Nehama, and directed by Emil Ben-Shimon. "The Women's Balcony" is an eccentric portrait of an already devout community suddenly under pressure from a super Orthodox rabbi to observe their faith in a more rigid way. While the mood is that of a gentle and affectionate comedy, the film makes some extremely sharp points about fanaticism, sexism masked as holiness, and tolerance among the faithful.
