Sunday Matinee: "The Invisibles" at the Westchester Jewish Film Festival 2018
For our next Empty Nest-Full Life event, we are inviting everyone to join us for the 5:00 pm screening of "The Invisibles" at the Jacob Burns Film Center on Sunday, March 25.
2017. 110 m. Claus Räfle. Menemsha Films. Germany. German with subtitles. Rated NR. All Films Series.
Claus Räfle’s emotionally gripping The Invisibles premiered to critical and public acclaim at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Set in February 1943 Berlin, it tells the true stories of four young Jews who survived the war there after the Nazi regime declared the Reich’s capital free of Jews. Their secret: They became invisible in plain sight. One led an adventurous life that included buying a sailboat, dining in Berlin’s best restaurants, and becoming a passport forger (which enabled him to save the lives of dozens of other Jews). Another joined the resistance and distributed antigovernment leaflets. One woman pretended to be a war widow and served black-market gourmet foods in the apartment of a German officer, and another dyed her hair blonde and infiltrated unsuspecting groups where a Jew would never have been accepted. Dramatic reenactments are interwoven with impressive interviews with the actual people whose lives inspired this captivating and moving feature film.
