WELCOME TO THE 19TH ANNUAL NASHVILLE JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL Dear Movie Fans, “Shalom” from the 2019 Nashville Jewish Film Festival (NJFF)! Shalom means many things in Hebrew, including welcome, hello, and greetings of peace and prosperity. We wish them all to you and to our broader Nashville community. Jamie Brook

This year the 19th annual NJFF celebration of Jewish-themed films, invited guest speakers, and special events focuses on tradition. We explore the role that tradition plays in how Jews act and what we think. Tevye will sing of it on Opening Night in Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles. Later that week, in the film The Keeper, the people of a small English town will grapple with tradition as they try to decide whether to ‘forgive’ or ‘never forget.’

Laurie Eskind

Jackie Roth Karr

There will be questions. You’ll wonder if tradition is so strong that a secular Jewish family can support a daughter’s sudden swerve to Orthodoxy in The Other Story, and you will marvel at how the Jews of Europe who escaped the Nazis in the film Above the Drowning Sea, kept their traditions in – of all places – China. Young Jewish people (in My Polish Honeymoon), as well as older generations (in both Prosecuting Evil and Sefarad), will show you how they strive to find ways to honor their traditions, including in the sport of baseball (Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel.) These questions and more are ours to contemplate and discuss. We are grateful to have been able to offer our film choices to you for 19 years. We hope you enjoy the 2019 NJFF, and thank you for your support. We’ll see you at the movies! After all, it’s a tradition!

THE NJFF DIRECTORS


GREETINGS FROM THE NJFF MANAGING DIRECTOR Your NJFF co-directors and I are frequently asked what is a Jewish movie and why don’t we show someone’s favorite film that has a Jewish actor, director or producers name on it. I have given the question a lot of thought and realize that just because a film stars, was written by, or is made by someone Jewish does not necessarily make it a Jewish film. Arthur Miller’s “A View From the Bridge” is not Jewish, though Miller was. Even a Woody Allen directed film is not necessarily Jewish - like his two latest films, “Midnight in Paris’” and ‘When in Rome.” We do, however, believe that a Jewish film sheds insight into the Jewish experience. It reflects on Jewish life - the good, the bad, the funny, and the tragic - in an effort to help understand how and why the Jewish world remains viable and committed after 5,000 years of dispersal, pogroms, and the Holocaust. Along with educating our audience, we do seek to entertain and are always looking to include upbeat and funny films along with our more serious documentaries. As we all know, there are many Holocaust-related films to choose from, but, like our audiences, we want a wide variety. I’m not sure this clarifies what a Jewish movie is completely, but I hope that it lends insight into what NJFF wants to present as part of our festivals. Welcome to the 19th Nashville Jewish Film Festival! Fran Brumlik, NJFF Managing Director

Holocaust Lecture Series (HLS) Founded in 1977 and now the longest running series at any American university, the HLS is run by the university chaplain and the Office of Religious Life, in collaboration with Vanderbilt Hillel. A diverse committee of students, faculty, staff, and the wider community work to promote continuing education and conversation on the Shoah and other instances of genocide, their lasting effects, and how we can continue to honor the memory of their victims. HLS has brought to campus notable figures such as Elie Wiesel, Simon Wiesenthal, and Deborah Lipstadt, among many others, to address themes including ethics, resistance, law, gender, art, and memory. The NJFF is delighted that the Vanderbilt University Holocaust Lecture Series is hosting the showing of ABOVE THE DROWNING SEA on Tuesday, October 29th at 7pm at the Belcourt Theatre.

19 USEFUL YIDDISH WORDS TO HELP YOU CELEBRATE & ENJOY OUR 19TH YEAR BUBBE: Grandmother. “Call your bubbe and invite her to the opening night of the Nashville Jewish Film Festival Festival!” CHUTZPAH: Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption, and confidence. “It took real chutzpah for him to ask her to skip the NJFF’s screening of SEFARAD, that’s a brilliant film!” KLUTZ: A clumsy person. “I fell over three times on the way to my computer in a rush to purchase tickets to RESCUE BUS 300. I’m such a klutz!” KVELL: To experience pride in someone else, typically one’s children. “David decided to take his date to see MY POLISH HONEYMOON, and I’m just kvelling.” KVETCH: To complain, whine or fret. “He likes to kvetch at me when we miss one of the educational & compelling movies they show at the NJFF.” MENSCH: Literally “man,” an honorable, decent, stand-up person. “I don’t care who you marry, as long as he’s a mensch and takes you to every movie at this year’s Nashville Jewish Film Festival.” MESHUGGENEH: Crazy, ridiculous, and insane. “He must be meshuggeneh to think I’m going to marry him on the same day the NJFF is screening SHOELACES.” MISHPOCHEH: Family, or someone who is “like family.” “Set a place at the table and put the NJFF festival guide in the chair, they’re mishpocheh.” NOSH: To eat or nibble. “Let’s nosh on popcorn and treats at the Belcourt concession stand before we see THE UNORTHODOX.”


OY VEY: An expression of woe. “Oy vey, we missed a movie at this year’s NJFF!” PLOTZ: To explode from anger or irritation. “Don’t plotz, I know how much you love Freud, but the NJFF’s screening of THE TOBACCONIST is sold out.” SCHLEP: To carry or travel with difficulty. “I don’t care if we have to schlep on foot from Memphis, we’re going to see EXTRA INNINGS. I love baseball and Syrian Jewish family drama!” SCHMOOZE: Chat, make small talk, converse about nothing in particular. “Sitting in a dark movie theatre and watching all the movies the NJFF has to offer is an excellent way to avoid unnecessary schmoozing ” SCHMUCK: A jerk, or a self-made fool. “Don’t be a schmuck, supporting the National Endowment for the Arts is something we all should do.” SCHMUTZ: A filthy or soiling substance (such as mud, dust, or grime). “Get something to wipe the schmutz off that NJFF poster - people need to see it.” SHANDA: A scandal, embarrassment. “It’s such a shanda that she’s never attended an NJFF! Let’s buy her tickets.” TACHLIS: Nuts and bolts, practical, concrete matters. “KING BIBI is a great film that doesn’t linger, it gets right to the tachlis of Netanyahu.” TCHOTCHKE: Knick-knack, little toy, collectible or giftware. “So, I snuggle with my NJFF festival guide - it’s my favorite tchotchke.” TUCHES: Butt, behind, sometimes shortened to tush or tushy. “Moshe, get off your tuches, we’re going to the 2019 Nashville Jewish Film Festival!” Yiddish is known as being its own rich linguistic culture. Born out of Hebrew and German, Yiddish has many unique words and phrases that are used to give humor, sarcasm, and joy in the moment as needed.
