Event Details

The 17th Annual Central Florida Jewish Film Festival, taking place November 14th – 16th, is a cinematic celebration of Jewish life, culture, and history. Using the power of film to inform, educate, and most of all entertain, the festival challenges conventional perspectives on issues facing all of us. This program is part of Enzian’s cultural festival circuit and is co-presented with the Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando and sponsored by Orlando Weekly.

A special menu will also be offered throughout the festival, including: Spinach & Cheese Knishes, Latkes, Holishkes, Hebrew National Hot Dogs, and Beef, Carrot, & Sweet Potato Tzimmes.

Sunday, November 15th at 11AM
This film will be playing at Enzian Theater

Born as Menachem Teitelbaum in Hungary, Marcus Schwarz (renowned German actor Mario Adorf) escaped Auschwitz with his life, only to extinguish his Jewishness. With no synagogue, Jewish friends or family, the hardened yet lovable old man has done such an effective job of creating a new identity in Germany that, when faced with his own mortality, the rabbis refuse his about-face appeal to be buried in a Jewish cemetery in Cologne. Determined to return to his birthplace and establish his ancestry, Marcus enlists the help of Gul, a brash, chain-smoking young Turkish woman with a troubled history of her own. The unlikely duo set out on an emotional and humorous road trip to a small village on the Hungarian-Romanian border, a journey that will irrevocably change them both.
