Houston Jewish Film Festival: June Zero

OPENING NIGHT 
June Zero 
Sunday, March 24 | 7:00 PM 
Drama | Directed by Jake Paltrow
2022 | Israel | Hebrew, with English subtitles | 105 Min. | Kaplan Theatre  
American filmmaker Jake Paltrow revisits the 1962 trial of Adolf Eichmann with a gripping Hebrew-language historical drama centered on three Israeli characters on the periphery of Eichmann’s last days: a precocious Libyan immigrant boy, a Moroccan prison guard and a Polish Holocaust survivor working for the prosecution. With Eichmann relegated to the background, the trio’s seemingly ordinary lives become intertwined in the extraordinary, seminal moment. Warmly saturated 16mm filming gives a rich, antique texture to all three storylines.

20th Anniversary Celebration: 6:15 PM – 7:00 PM 
Join us on Opening Night to celebrate 20 years of the Houston Jewish Film Festival with light bites, live music and a glimpse down memory lane.

Underwritten by The Margolis Family

Community Partners: Congregation Beth Israel, Holocaust Museum Houston
