anet Rosenberg Jagan has a history in
Detroit,- but she made history in
Guyana, a South American country
between Venezuela and Brazil.
Her story — that of a Jewish woman who
married a Guyanan and eventually became the
first female president of his country — is the
subject of one of the compelling films selected
for this year's 6th Annual JCC Lenore Marwil
Jewish Film Festival.
Thunder in Guyana, made by Jagan's cousin
Suzanne Wasserman, joins some 34 films being
shown April 25-May -6 divided among four
movie houses — United Artists Theatres in
Commerce Township, Birmingham 8 Theatres
in Birmingham, the Michigan Theater in Ann
Arbor and the Palace Theatre in Windsor.
The documentary film Paper Clips is at the
center of the screenings as the winner of the
local Harold and Sarah Gottlieb Prize for
Contributions to Jewish Culture. The produc-
tion tells the story of young people in
Tennessee collecting paper clips — some sent
from Michigan — in a project to memorialize
victims of the Holocaust.
"Paper Clips' first showing will be on Sunday,
which is Yom HaZikaron [Israel Remembrance
Day] and evev Yom HaAtzmaut [Israel
Independence Day], and it really projects the
sentiments of these two special days," says
David Magidson, festival director working
with festival chairperson Susan. Marwil and
associate chairperson Nancy Glass. "Besides
being a wonderful film, we thought it would
appeal to people of all ages.
Drama enters into the documentaries as well
