Tarantino to attend JTS screening of ‘Inglourious Basterds’


NEW YORK (JTA) — The producer of “Inglourious Basterds” will discuss the topic of revenge at a Jewish Theological Seminary screening.

Lawrence Bender following the Dec. 16 showing of the Quentin Tarantino-directed film will join a panel discussion with Chancellor Arnold Eisen and other leaders of the New York seminary.

Tarantino, who is not Jewish, will attend the screening but will not participate in the discussion.

“Inglourious Basterds” is about a team of American Jewish soldiers who hunts and brutally kills Nazis during the latter part of World War II.

The movie, which has received critical acclaim, is Tarantino’s revenge fantasy against Hitler and the Nazis.
