Jaffa

This year’s Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival opens today, Wednesday with Anita, an Argentine drama about an adult with Down syndrome lost in Buenos Aires after a terrorist attack; and ends December 12 with the Israeli film Jaffa, a film about how a family tragedy forces a young Jewish woman to reassess her interfaith romance with a Palestinian man.

Stories about strong women drive the official lineup with films like Berlin ’36, a biography of the German Jewish high jumper Gretel Bergmann; Bride Flight, a fact-based Dutch romantic drama set during the 1953 Air Race from England to New Zealand; Saviors in the Night, which recounts the true-life story of a German family who took in a Jewish woman and her daughter during World War II; the similarly themed No. 4 Street of Our Lady, a documentary about a Polish Catholic who hid 16 Jewish neighbors from the Nazis; and Sixty in the City, an Israeli documentary about director Nili Tal’s online dating experiences as an older woman.
