Reviews of a trio of films at the Boston Jewish Film Festival.
School is in full session, family holidays are looming, a nail biting election is imminent (or past), but films are up to the challenge, whether you are looking for art or escape. The Boston Jewish Film Festival brings 45 films to 10 Boston area locations, B.U.and UMass host free film screenings with filmmaker talk backs, Harvard offers a classy horror flick, the ICA has commercials, and there are shorts galore.
After catching your breath from a heavy dose of April film festivals, you may think you need a rest! While this month’s Boston area offerings may look tidy in number, they are sprawling in scope. April provided a look at what’s coming and current, but May is steeped in history and alternative cinema.
