    Philadelphia’s Jewish and Asian American film fests start soon
    The Gershman Y is presenting their annual fest for the 35th year, with the lofty aim of “[perpetuating] Jewish values, culture and history through the medium of film. Showing 21 films from nine different countries over a span of 15 days, the PJFF is set to enjoy its biggest, most successful iteration to date, thanks to notable, game-changing entries guaranteed to captivate audiences, including the 2014 French masterpiece To Life (À La Vie), a historical drama focusing on three friends who reconnect 15 years after surviving the Holocaust, and Natasha—showing at the Ritz East—which chronicles a forbidden romance between 16-year-old Mark Berman and his uncle’s Russian mail-order bride.

    PJFF35 Closing Night: SOFT VENGEANCE – An Evening with the Honorable Albie Sachs

    In this powerful documentary about the fall of apartheid and the rise of a free South Africa, Director Abby Ginzberg takes a different, but no less rewarding, route than most who have tackled the subject. A great many apartheid-related documentaries tend to focus on the larger-than-life Nelson Mandela, while simultaneously simplifying the conflict into a “blacks are good; whites are bad” scenario. Ginzberg moves this film in a more compelling direction, introducing us to the incredible true story of Albie Sachs.
