UK Jewish Film Festival – Budapest Noir (Plus Post-Screening Reception)
Nov 10 @ 7:30 pm

Budapest Noir
Producer Ildikó Kemény has been invited to attend the screening
Dir: Éva Gárdos | Drama | Hungary 2017 | Hungarian with English subs | 95 mins
Cast: Krisztián Kolovratnik, Kata Dobó, Anger Zsolt
Director Éva Gárdos revisits film noir classics such as Chinatown in this stylish reimagining of Budapest in 1936, shortly before Hungary turned fascist. Investigating the mysterious death of a Jewish woman, charismatic reporter Zsigmond dives into the capital’s underworld. In its brothels
and boxing rings and amidst corrupted politicians and gangsters, he finds a city on the verge of eruption.
A stunning glimpse into Hungarian urban life on the eve of the Second World War and a beautiful homage to the golden era of cinema.

UK Jewish Film Festival – ‘Itzhak’
Nov 11 @ 6:00 pm

Dir: Alison Chernick | Documentary | USA 2017 | English
and Hebrew with English subs | 82 mins

Cast: Itzhak Perlman, Toby Perlman, Billy Joel

At the tender age of 13, Israeli boy Itzhak
Perlman appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, where he amazed his host and millions of people at home with his virtuosic violin performance. Since then he has become one of the world’s best known, and loved, musicians. This documentary follows Perlman, now 73, as he continues
to perform and teach. Despite his equally famous friends and collaborators, Perlman
didn’t lose his Israeli informality, which makes both him and this film so delightful.

A must-watch for music lovers.
