Part of the Spool and Spiel FestivalSun April 10th 2011: (NSH 6.30 for 7pm)

TO BE OR NOT TO BE

107 mins (1983). Director: Alan Johnson; Producer: Mel Brooks; starring Mel Brooks, Anne Bancroft, Tim Matheson, Charles Durning, Christopher Lloyd, José Ferrer.

Synopsis: This remake was one of the first major American films to acknowledge that homosexuals were persecutedby the Third Reich, along with other Holocaust victims. This version was extremely faithful to the 1942 film on which it was based, and in many cases dialogue was taken verbatim from the earlier film. The character of the treacherous Professor Siletski, played by Jose Ferrer, was however made into more of a comic figure, and even into somewhat of a buffoon, whereas in the original he was the one completely serious character in the film. For his humorous performance as Colonel Erhardt, Charles Durning was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award.

Is this film just a satire on the Nazis? How does it compare with The Great Dictator?

Is this film really serious? Is it a survival fantasy? Who is allowed to make fun of the Holocaust?

What comparisons can be drawn with The Producers, Train de Vie, Life is Beautiful etc.

90 mins (2008). Written and directed by Ari Folman.Synopsis: This film is about memories of a war and their repression. The story line is told in the first person and in harsh, hardedged animation. Ari, a 19 year old infantry solder in the Israeli army takes part in the 1982 Lebanon campaign. Years later, he meets a friend who tells him about a recurring nightmare he has from the war and Ari then too realizes that he doesn’t remember a thing about it – the war was one of the most significant events in his life and yet he cannot recall it. To understand it all, Ari seeks out his unit friends to hear their personal experiences of the war and to better understand what has happened to himself psychologically. Some parts of the film are very surrealist and the film moves between recollections of real events to

dreams and hallucinations.

Trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v= ylzO9vbEpPg&feature=related

Discussion led by Offer Israeli (who was in the 1982 campaign) and Vered Rodriguez, a young Israeli filmmaker and animator.

55 mins (2010). Written, produced and directed by Mark Radomsky.Synopsis: This film documents the 2009 football tour of Australia by an Israeli-Palestinian combined Youth Peace AFL football team coached by Australians (they will be coming again in September 2011). In an attempt to sideline decades of conflict, a joint team of Israeli and Palestinian sportsmen learn Australian Rules football together. They hope to play on the same side against 16 other countries, in the AFL International Cup. Hardly any of the aspirant players had ever heard of the game previously, and none ever imagined befriending teammates across the political/ cultural divide. But with open hostilities raging around them, will these old enemies set aside prejudice and hostility to unite into a single Peace Team?

Tackling Peace is the inspirational behind-the-scenes story of these young men from the two sides of a bloody political war, as they compete together to be on the same team.

Newtown Synagogue is excited to present the film “Children of the Sun”,Sunday 11 December at 6:30pm @ 18 Georgina St Newtown.

Members: $5

Non-members: $10

 

Light refreshments will be served and film will be introduced by Offer Israeli who will provide some personal reflections on growing up on a Kibbutz.

 

Synopsis: Children of the first kibbutzim in Israel were born in the early 20 th century to youthful parents, full of hope. They have been called “Children of the Sun”, because they considered them children of the “Sun of Nations” Revolution in Israel. They were born into a eutopia and were destined to become the “New Man”. They were educated in a ideological society that aspired to replace the traditional family with the collective one, to subjugate the will of the individual in favor of the common good and a life of equality. “Children of the Sun” tells the story of the journey in search of a society’s memory and the concepts that have passed from the world. The film is a collage comprised of over eighty amateur films. The tapestry of rare materials from which the film is compiled creates both a very personal and very public story, a form of super story about one of the most fascinating myths of the Zionist movement in the Land of Israel.

Synopsis: In 1905 a 19-year-old Russian girl suffering from severe hysteria is admitted into a psychiatric hospital in Zurich.
A young doctor, Carl Jung, takes her under his care and for the first time experiments with the psychoanalytical method of his teacher, Sigmund Freud. Based on recently exposed secret correspondence between Jung, Freud and Sabina Spielrein, this film begins with Spielrein’s healing, closely related to her passionate love affair with Jung, followed by her return to post-revolutionary Russia, where she became a psychoanalyst herself, founding the famous White School,  and her sudden death in 1942, the victim of Nazi violence. The investigation of this story becomes an essential component of the film via two modern researchers who follow Sabina’s life from Zurich to Moscow to Rostow, leading to the discovery of missing portions of the original correspondence.

Plot Summary for
The Soul Keeper (2002)  Prendimi l’anima (original title)

Seduced by Jung, killed by hate, redeemed by history. In 1905 a 19-year-old Russian girl suffering from severe hysteria is admitted into a psychiatric hospital in Zurich. A young doctor, Carl Gustav Jung, takes her under his care and for the first time experiments with the psychoanalytical method of his teacher, Sigmund Freud. Based on recently exposed secret correspondence between Jung, Freud and Sabina Spielrein, this true story begins with the Spielrein’s healing, closely related to her passionate love affair with Jung, followed by her return to post-revolutionary Russia ? where she became a psychoanalyst herself founding the famous White School ? and her sudden death in 1942, the victim of Nazi violence. The investigation of this story becomes an essential component of the film via two modern researchers, Marie, a young French scholar, and Fraser, a historian from Glasgow, who follow Sabina’s life from Zurich to Moscow to Rostow, leading to the discovery of missing portions of the original correspondence. And since any exploration of others’ lives inevitably leads to delving into one’s own self, the two stories then finally interweave and are swept away in the passionate journey. Written by Harmony Gold USA, Inc.

In the present days, Maria Spielrein and Fraser are in Russia making a research about the life of Sabina Spielrein. In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, this Russian girl was a patient treated by Dr. Jung and later they fall in love for each other and Sabina became his lover. While the researchers read the documents, the romance between Sabina and Dr. Jung is disclosed, in a time of revolution and war. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In Another Lifetime (Austria) (2011)

 

Directed by Elisabeth Scharang. With Johannes Krisch, Orsolya Tóth, Ursula Strauss.

 

Featured at the 31st San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 2011.

“Set in Austria in April 1945, during the chaotic final days of World War II, the film is one of the festival’s most interesting offerings and from its opening scene, cast in the natural light of the Austrian Alps, there is no turning away. Its subject matter—an operetta performance that offers hope and healing to both Jewish prisoners and their captors— hasn’t been tackled before in Holocaust film …” (Review by Geneva Anderson)

The Inner West Chavurah and Newtown Synagogue continue our series of films and discussion.My Mexican Shivah (2007)

Jewish traditions through a Mexican lens

Directed by Alejandro Springall. With Blanca Guerra, Martha Roth, and Sergio Kleiner.

“After a free-spirited Jewish patriarch drops dead during a party, his friends and family come together to sit shivah over him but spend much of their time complaining about his roguish ways. This ribald Mexican comedy by writer-director Alejandro Springall uses the seven days of shivah to launch a series of hilariously escalating confrontations, including one in which elderly men nearly come to blows over who’s the more genuine Jew. Meanwhile angels invisible to the guests soberly calculate the dead man’s virtues and vices. Raquel Pankowsky is effectively grating as the dead man’s daughter, who’s embittered by his abandonment of the family for an alluring shiksa. In Spanish, Yiddish, and Hebrew with subtitles.” (Review by Joshua Katzman)
