Mr. Kaplan
Sunday, September 20, 4:00 pm

After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. Now 76, he begins to question his worth. After learning of a mysterious German prowling the shores of
a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he's found a Nazi in hiding and plans to expose him. Expertly distilling a potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy, Mr.
Kaplan is a vivacious meditation on family, aging, and the drive for significance.
98 minutes— Spanish/Yiddish with English Subtitles— Comedy/Drama (2014)

September 27, 4:00 pm

In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce. Only rabbis can legitimate a marriage or its dissolution. But this dissolution is only possible with full consent from the husband, who in the end has more power than the judges. Viviane Amsalem has been applying for divorce for three years. But her husband Elisha will not agree. His cold intransigence, Viviane's determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges shape
a procedure in which tragedy vies with absurdity, and everything is brought out for judgment, apart from the initial request.
115 minutes -- Hebrew/French/Arabic with English subtitles -- Drama (2014)

Zero Motivation
Sunday, October 4, 4:00 pm

A zany, dark, & comedic portrait of everyday life for a unit of young, female Israeli soldiers. The Human Resources Office at a remote desert base serves as the setting for this cast of
characters who bide their time pushing paper and battling in computer games, counting down the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, issues of commitment - to friendship, love, and country - are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit.
97 minutes -- Hebrew with English subtitles — Comedy/Drama (2014)

When Ilan Halimi is kidnapped for ransom because he is Jewish and supposedly rich, his family and the police start a race against time to save him from the tortures of the "gang of barbarians".
