With each scene of sugar plum fairies, fighting mice and magical journeys to enchanted lands more breathtaking than the last, Nutcracker truly is what dreams are made of.

Unmasked: Judeophobia*

 

Sunday, November 20th, 2011 7:00pm

 

The current political assault against the State of Israel fundamentally is a war against the Jewish people and their right to self-determination. Jews are facing threats much greater than military threats in the battlefield or terror threats in urban centers. They are facing the possible destruction of the idea that there should be a nation state of the Jewish people.

 

UNMASKED conveys in very powerful and compelling ways the danger that civilized societies are facing by the resurgence of lethal hatred towards Jews in general and the Jewish state in particular.

Race to Nowhere*

 

September 15th, 2011 at 7:30pm

 

Director Vicki Abeles turns the personal political, igniting a national conversation in her new documentary about the pressures faced by American schoolchildren and their teachers in our achievement obsessed public and private education system and culture. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried students aren't developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what's best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

 

Tickets will be $10 pre-sale through www.racetonowhere.com or $15 at the door.

Between Two Worlds*

 

Tuesday, Aug. 16 at 7:30pm

 

Who speaks for a divided community at the crossroads? "Between Two Worlds" is a groundbreaking personal exploration of the community and family divisions that are redefining Amercian Jewish identity and politics. The filmmakers' own families are battlegrounds over loyalty to Israel, interpretations of the Holocaust, intermarriage, and a secret communist past. Filmed in the United States and Israel, the first person documentary begins with a near riot at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, reveals the agonizing battle over divestment from Israel on a university campus, and shows the crackdown on dissent in Israel itself. The film aims to reframe the terms of debate and provide a vehicle for open conversations about difficult issues.

 

Q&A with award winning filmmakers Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman immediately following screening.

 

Buy Tickets Tickets: Pre-sale through Aug. 15: $12 online only. Day of show: $15 Adult; $10 Student with valid id.
