January 23: Torn
Can one be a Catholic priest and an observant Jew at the same time? Twelve years after he was ordained as a Polish Catholic priest, Romuald Waszkinel discovers that he was born to Jewish parents. The film follows his amazing journey: from conducting mass in a church in Poland to life as an observant Jew in a religious kibbutz in Israel. Torn between two identities he is unable to renounce either, and consequently, he is unaccepted by both religions, as well as the state of Israel. Now, he is required to choose.

February 20: #Uploading_Holocaust
Thousands of young Israelis join “the journey to Poland” each year to learn about the Holocaust. Looking into the journey through the videos they upload on YouTube reveals a moving and troubling image about the way collective memory is formed in the web age. In the YouTube clips they create, students share private and moving moments of fear and despair – unmediated testimonies of themselves trying to make sense of the senseless. Using these clips as raw material, the film follows the journey to Poland from a variety of intimate viewpoints.

Fern Bernstein, Mah Jongg Mondays
Fern, married and the mother of three boys, takes us into her modern middle-class suburban Long Island world where one day she gets the “Big Idea” to learn the Chinese tile game called mah jongg. Weekly games provide the setting for deep-seeded friendships to form around the mah jongg table. This is a heartwarming story about the wonderful things that can happen when five women are destined to come together to play an old Chinese game, sitting around a table with 152 tiles, dice, and a mah jongg card. Love always; love all ways, for time has no guarantees.
