The Gershman Y’s 32nd annual PJFF features films from Argentina to Russia and beyond. We start off with The Day I Saw Your Heart, starring Inglourious Basterds leading lady Mélanie Laurent. This film-circuit fave follows a conflicted artist in her struggles for self-actualization and reconciliation with her dysfunctional French-Jewish family. Another crowd-pleaser, Kaddish for a Friend has collected audience awards from film festivals in Boston, Dayton, Pittsburgh and Washington. Leo Khasin presents the story of a war-battered Russian Jew and refuge-seeking Palestinian teen sharing a Berlin apartment. And “Argentina’s Woody Allen,” Daniel Burman, steps up with the poignant comedy All In, a romantic yarn about a recovering divorcée who crosses paths with an old love at a professional poker table.
