Bozeman's 3rd Annual Jewish Film Festival continues With "Welcome."
The film will be screened at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 5th, in the Procrastinator Theatre on the MSU campus. The event is free and open to the public.
In the film, Kurdish teen Bilal has traveled all the way to the north of France in the hope of reuniting with his girlfriend in England. To get around a legal technicality, he decides to swim across the English Channel -- even though he's unable to swim. The local swimming instructor who is struggling with his own impending divorce, agrees to train Bilal for his grueling journey. The two soon form a strong bond that helps them in unexpected ways.
The Jewish Film Festival is sponsored by Congregation Beth Shalom, the MSU Diversity Awareness Office, the MSU Film School, the Bozeman Film Society, Movie Lovers, Inc, and a number of generous individual and family sponsors.
