The 2018 festival commemorates our 10th Anniversary 


MONDAY, MARCH 26 — 5:00 PM @ CINE (130 MIN)


Paradise tells the story of three individuals and the fateful decisions they make, forced by a totality of conviction. Olga (Julia Vysotskaya) is a beautiful Russian aristocratic émigré and member of the French Resistance; Jules (Philippe Duquesne) is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut (Christian Clauss) is a high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film flashes back to the end of World War II and the days when their destinies crossed.

“Rabbi Wolff”

William Wolff is in his late 80s and is probably the most unconventional rabbi in the world.
The small gentleman was born in Berlin, carries a British passport and lives in a countryside bungalow south of London. His regular commute takes him midweek from Heathrow to Hamburg, from where he boards a train and travels to his Jewish communities in Schwerin and Rostock. Rabbi Wolff is not only the portrait of a fascinating personality, of a deeply religious man who defies conventions, driven by his lust for life; the film also delves into the enticing world of Judaism and presents to us a uniquely eclectic, German resumé.
