20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival

For the safety and health of our community, it has become necessary to postpone our 20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival set to begin on Thursday, March 19.  We will reschedule the films when we know we can do so safely.  We expect that the modified festival will include screenings throughout the summer, September and October. All purchased tickets will be exchangeable once the new dates are confirmed.

Please contact Sarah Diamond with any questions: (973) 929-2938 or [email protected]


 

DOCUMENTARY
Director: Dani Menkin
2019 • 75 minutes • USA, Israel / English, Hebrew

In 1976, Aulcie Perry, a gifted black athlete from Newark, was recruited by the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team and helped lead them to their first historic European Cup championship, putting Israel, as his teammate and fellow Jerseyan Tal Brody claimed, “on the map.” After converting to Judaism and becoming an Israeli citizen, Perry reveled in the adulation of his new country — but soon took a turn onto a self-destructive path. He paid dearly for his mistakes and made a valiant attempt to redeem himself. Post-screening discussion via Skype with filmmaker Dani Menkin
