NJJFF: The Euphoria of Being

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]

The Euphoria of Being

Director: Réka Szabó
2019 • 83 minutes • Hungary / Hungarian

Eva Fahidi survived Auschwitz; her mother, father, sister, and 49 family members were killed, and she returned alone to Hungary after the war. When the nonagenarian is asked to participate in a dance theater duet about her life, with acclaimed young dancer Emese Cuhorka, the two women embark on a process of creative interaction on stage, intertwining their bodies and their stories. The horror of Eva’s past and her sustaining exuberance for life are expressed through a performance that defines love and resilience.

This film is brought to you by Dr. Ruth and Gerald Legow


DOCUMENTARY SHORT (Shown before The Euphoria of Being)
Director: Malcolm Green
2018 • 6 minutes • United Kingdom / English

Janine, a Holocaust survivor, and Kapoo, a young African-American rapper, collaborate to deliver a hip-hop fusion to tell one of the world’s darkest stories in an entirely new and inspiring way.
