St. Louis Jewish Film Festival: Double Feature – “A Children’s Song” & “The Last Mentsch”

July 10, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$12

“A Children’s Song”

U.S.A.
English/Chinese with English Subtitles
Director: Shayna Cohen
Feature: 28 Minutes

Heartwarming nostalgia… When two students competing for a music scholarship discover that their original compositions are based on a single family song, both become determined to prove ownership, leading them to uncover the long lost true origin of the melody: a story of salvation and hope when more than 20,000 Jews emigrated to Shanghai during WWII.

Sponsor: Linda and Nathan Cohen

“The Last Mentsch”

Germany/France/Switzerland
German with English Subtitles
Director: Pierre-Henry Salfati
Feature: 93 Minutes

The cost of forgetting the past – the power of remembering it… Without family, a synagogue or a single Jewish friend, Marcus, a hardened Holocaust survivor has so effectively created a new identity that, when faced with his own mortality, the rabbis refuse his appeal to be buried in a Jewish cemetery in Cologne. Determined to return to his birthplace and establish his ancestry, he enlists the help of a young Turkish woman with a troubled history of her own. The unlikely duo sets out on a journey that will irrevocably change them both.

Sponsor: Diane Fredman
Introduction: Sharon Weissman, Retired Hospice Chaplain

Screening Location: St. Louis Jewish Community Center, Arts & Education Building, Creve Coeur, MO
