Event: Film Screening – 1945 | Part of New Jersey Jewish Film Festival
Date: Monday, March 19, 2018 | 7:30pm
Location: Dolan Performance Hall, Annunciation Center

On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to a village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the town clerk's son. The townspeople – suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and cunning – expect the worst and behave accordingly. The town clerk fears the men may be heirs of the village's deported Jews and expects them to demand their illegally acquired property back.

Director Ferenc Török paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with the recent horrors they've experienced, perpetrated, or just tolerated for personal gain. A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe's famed sentiment: you can't go home again.

This film screening, free and open to the public, is part of the New Jersey Jewish Film Festival. Advance registration is required.
