Left Luggage stars Maximilian Schell and Isabella Rossellini in an emotional story of 
how a young student learns to understand her parents' denial of their Holocaust 
Survival. Voyages was a recent favorite of the Cannes Film Festival. Directed by 
Emmanuel Finkiel (an assistant director of Kieslowski's Red, White and Blue trilogy) 
Voyages masterfully intertwines the contemporary stories of three survivors thru three 
countries in five languages. Kurt Gerron's Karussell is a German film focusing on one 
of Weimar Germany's greatest actors, who later directed the Nazi propaganda film on 
Thereisenstadt. Making a Killing, a British-made documentary on the current 
implications of art stolen by the Nazis, is followed by a talk by John Coffey, chief 
curator at the NC Museum of Art. 

Rashi is a thrilling animated historical drama about the great Rabbi and scholar.  
Peace of Mind  features some of the participants in the Seeds of Peace camp of 
Israelis and Palestinians, and will be followed by a Q and A session with one of the 
filmakers. Happy Birthday Mr. Mograbi is a "mockumentary" on the Israeli-Palestinian 
situation by the director of "How I Learned to Overcome My Fear and Love Arik Sharon". 

But wait-there's more! I'm Losing You, Packing for Two, Village of Idiots (direct from 
Chelm via Canada), The Assistant (based on the Bernard Malamud novel), and Paragraph 
175 (co-sponsored with the North Carolina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival). 

Triangle community involvement has increased for the NCJFF 2001. A live performance on 
Sunday February 25 featuring Jewish music by six local choral and instrumental groups 
will be a fun family event. Performers include instrumental group Mispacha, choral 
group Mappamundi, the Triangle Jewish Chorale, klezmer artists Magnolia Klezmer Band 
and South of Delancey, as well the Rabbi, the Russian and the Blonde (featuring Beth 
Meyer's Rabbi Bockman). The community resource room will house children's storytelling 
hours, educational lectures, information booths from many Jewish organizations 
throughout the state and children's art exhibits.
