PAGE 8A HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, OCTOBER 31, 2014 The 16th annual Central Florida Jewish Film Festival is a cinematic celebration of Jewish life, culture, and his- tory. Six films will be shown during the weekend of Nov. 15-17. All will be shown at the Enzian, 1300 South Orlando Ave., Maitland, with the exception of the first film, "Kidon," which will be shown at the Orlando Science Center, 777 E Princeton St, Orlando. This program is part of En- zian's cultural festival circuit and is co-presented with the Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando. The six films that will be presented are: "Kidon," shown at the Or- lando Science Center, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m.- An ingenious, fast-moving spy caper and comedy-thriller from Israel and France boasting a ter- rific ensemble cast includ- ing Tomer Sisley and Israeli supermodel and actress Bar Refaeli. Nominated for two Israeli Oscars and winner of the Audience Award for Best Film at the London Israeli Film & TV Festival. "Mr. Kaplan," Nov. 16, 11 a.m.--This is the east coast premiere of this hilarious, crowd-pleasing comedy and a vivacious meditation on family, aging, and the drive for significance. "24 Days," Nov. 16, 1:30 p.m. This film is a gripping and carefully-plotted thriller that tells the true story of the 2006 kidnapping and torture of 23-year-old Ilan Halimi in a Paris suburb by "The Gang of Barbarians," whose heinous anti-Semitic crime eventually sparked a national outcry in France. Two for One! "The Stur- geon Queens" preceded by "70 Hester Street," Nov. 17, 4:30 p.m.--"The Sturgeon Queens" is about four genera- tions of a Jewish immigrant family who founded Russ and Daughters, a Lower East Side lox and herring empo- rium. Produced to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the store, this documentary won Audience Awards at the Palm Beach, San Diego, and Los Angeles Jewish Film Fes- tivals. It features an extensive interviewwith two of the orig- inal daughters for whom the storewas named, now 100 and 92 years old, and interviews with prominent enthusiasts of the store including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin, and 60 Minutes correspondent Morley Safer. "70 Hester Street" is about the director Casimir Noz- kowski's childhood home--a 140-year-old building that was a former synagogue, whiskey still, raincoat factory and art studio his parents rented for 45 years until its sale in 2012. "The Green Prince," Nov. 17, 6:45 p.m.--Atense psychologi- cal thriller, this extraordinary documentary recounts the true story of the son of a Hamas leader who emerged as one of Israel's prized informants, and the Shin Bet agent who risked his career to protect him. Based on Mosab Hassan Yousef's bestselling memoir "Son of Hamas," the film exposes a complex world of terror, be- trayal, and impossible choices.
