Los Alamos has been selected as the “chosen” location for the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival’s first “satellite screening” outside of the City Different, announced Festival Director, Marcia Torobin.
“There is a vibrant and active cultural community on the Hill. It’s an ideal environment for expanding the reach and enjoyment of the eclectic mix of documentaries and first run features the Festival presents,” Torobin said.
The local kickoff begins with the screening of award-winning Israeli documentary film, “Precious Life,” 4 p.m. March 9 at the Reel Deal Theater.
“Precious Life” follows the real-life story of a Palestinian baby with a rare immune deficiency disorder and the Israeli doctor who hopes to save the baby’s life.
It is an up-close and personal story set against the larger backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film was featured at the Telluride, Toronto and Mill Valley Film Festivals and won the Ophir Award (the Israeli Academy Award) for Best Documentary.
It has garnered accolades from The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune, and was described by film critic Thomas Friedman as “a story of compassion among enemies and cruelty among neighbors.”
