On October 7, 2023, Hamas’s brutal terrorist attack caused the evacuation and cessation of all activities at Sapir College in Sderot, Israel—home to its premier film program. Sapir students were just weeks away from presenting their final film projects at the annual film festival at Cinema South.

In solidarity with Israel, and to specifically draw attention to the Israeli filmmakers coming out of Sapir College, the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival is having a special opening night celebration; showing five student films and sharing the stories of how those involved in each, have had their lives turned upside down since October 7, 2023.

Join us at the B&B Theaters in Creve Coeur and witness the stories and the cinema making timely human connections to the Israeli community across the world.

Tickets to Opening Night: Celebrating Israeli Filmmakers From Sapir College are $20 each.

Colombia, May 1960, just a few days after the abduction of the Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann by Mossad agents in Argentina. Polsky, a lonely and grumpy Holocaust survivor, lives in the remote Colombian countryside. One day, when a mysterious old German man moves in next-door, he suspects that his new neighbor is… Adolf Hitler. But, to gather evidence, he will need to be closer to his neighbor than he would like. So close that the two could almost become friends.
