In last month’s column, I listed six Jewish-themed films scheduled for this year’s CIFF (Burman’s film Brother & Sister and Nesher film The Matchmaker, plus Circus Kids, The Debt, Little Rose and Polish Bar), but I ended up seeing two more than expected: I Miss You (from Argentina) and The Last Report on Anna (from Hungary).
For reviews of seven films listed above along with an interview with Little Rose director Jan Kidawa-Blonski and photos from a reception for Brother & Sister director Daniel Burman, visit my Blog: www.SecondCityTzivi.com.
(Unfortunately I was unable to see The Debt. No preview was scheduled for critics and since the public screening conflicted with the opening night of the Chicago Festival of Israeli Cinema, my own choice was an easy one.)
Photos taken at Oct 17th reception for Daniel Burman. Photo of Daniel with Vivian Teng (Managing Director of Cinema Chicago) taken by me. Photo of me with Daniel taken by Paul Hudson. Huge thanks to the great staff @ Markethouse Restaurant: delicious salads, juicy mini-burgers & desserts to die for!
