The international festival of Jewish films has opened in Nice. Some 15 films, depicting various aspects of Jewish life or dealing with Jewish subjects, will be shown during the four-day festival.
Among the films to be shown will be Alia Kazan’s 1947 “The invisible Wall,” Robert Bober’s and Georges Perec’s 1980 “Ellis Island” as well as Moshe Mizrachi’s new film retracing the creation of the State of Israel. A film portraying the life and work of Dr. Nahum Goldmann by Isidore Romero will be shown publicly for the first time.
The festival is a private project organized by a number of local Jewish organizations with the help of the Nice Jewish community.
