At the end of this month, I strongly recommend the new documentary Crime After Crime by filmmaker Yoav Potash. Joshua Safran is a California attorney specializing in property law when he takes on a pro bono case of historic proportions.
Potash follows Safran for years as he digs deep into Torah for sustenance. Since Safran is always unplugged on Saturdays, he’s the last to receive an important update at critical point in the appeal, but he returns from his Shabbat observance refreshed and renewed, so watching him battle on becomes an uplifting experience.
Crime After Crime will play on Sunday August 28th (one night only) at the Gene Siskel Film Center on State Street as part of their 17th Annual Black Harvest Festival. To order tickets, visit www.SiskelFilmCenter.com.
