Based on the 1968 novel by Yoram
Kaniuk, "Adam Resurrected" depicts the
experiences of Adam Stein (Jeff Goldblum).
A popular entertainer in Berlin, Stein is
sent to a concentration camp when the
Nazis come to power. To save himself, he
must serve the evil Commandant Klein
(Willem Dafoe) - who takes tremendous
pleasure in dehumanizing Stein. Years later,
Stein's suppressed grief emerges, and he is
sent to a psychiatric asylum for Holocaust
survivors. While there, he meets a boy who
thinks he is a dog. Adam relives his own
traumatic past but remains determined
to help the boy transcend his thoughts
and receive redemption.

Leila Ferault sets out to explore the mystery
of her gentile paternal grandfather and the
strange family silence about his activities in
Vichy, France, during World War II. On the
maternal side of her family, Ferault's
grandparents were victims of the Holocaust.
This soul-searching film takes viewers into
an emotional labyrinth where responsibility
for the past must be weighed against the
reality of family and blood.

Filmmaker Leila Ferault will speak following
film showings in Commerce and Ann Arbor.

Aviva is a cook at a hotel in Tiberius and

secretly a talented writer. The only person
aware of Aviva's gift is her sister, Anita.
Full of life, free-spirited Anita encourages
her sister to share her writing with Oded,
a well-known writer who ultimately mentors
Aviva in this touching film about making
dreams come true.

Follow five young people born and raised
within the haredi (extreme right-wing,
anti-Zionist) world who no longer wish to
remain on the inside. As children, they grew
up in a closed society where deviation from
the rules was unthinkable; as young adults,
they pay a steep price for abandoning their
community.
Yet there are happy endings, too. Two
young men who have left the haredi world
are able to maintain a relationship with
their father, a rabbi. They disagree about
religion, but familial ties - along with
respect and honest dialogue - are never
abandoned.

"City of Borders" follows the daily lives of
five Israelis and Palestinians at Jerusalem's
only gay bar, the Shushan. Set against the
construction of the separation wall between
Israel and the Palestinian territories
and the struggle for a gay pride parade in
Jerusalem, these interwoven stories reveal
the contradictions and complexity of the
struggle for acceptance.
