The 4th Annual Jewish Film Festival in Bozeman, brought to you by the Diversity and Inclusion Student Commons and Congregation Beth Shalom, presents the best Jewish-themes films from all over the world. It will take place over six Wednesdays throughout the summer. This summer's film festival will continue with a screening of 1945 on June 6th at 7 p.m. in the MSU Procrastinator Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.
Featuring striking black-and-white lensing that imbues potent compositions with foreboding, Magyar multihyphenate Ferenc Török’s finely performed 1945 takes on a transitional time in Hungarian history with subtlety and nuance: It’s a sweltering day in August, and two Orthodox Jews’ arrival in a remote Hungarian village catalyzes an unwelcome reckoning with the recent past for the local inhabitants. Like compatriot director László Nemes’ “Son Of Saul,” the gripping period drama offers a fresh, intelligent cinematic approach to a difficult topic.
