The 15th Annual Louisville Jewish Film Festival strives to show the richness and diversity of the Jewish experience by presenting the best contemporary international films. Through feature films, shorts, documentaries and student films, as well as conversations with guest speakers, the festival explores Jewish identity with the hope of increasing tolerance and educating its audiences. Some of the films we have shown have gone on to be nominated for Academy Awards and remade into Hollywood films. Many of them have received Israel’s highest awards for films. Since our beginning over 100 outstanding films have been shown at a variety of venues accompanied by exciting speakers and receptions.
Awards: Best Documentary and Best Director Jerusalem Film Festival
This documentary begins with the emptying of a flat when the Goldfinger family discovers a preserved issue of a pro-Nazi newspaper among their dead grandmother’s things. Shocked to learn that his grandparents maintained a friendship before and after the war with a Nazi official and his wife, the filmmaker’s investigation exposes powerful barriers of denial.
