The Michael and Barbara Erlichman Film Series: "The Last Suit"

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 24 Tishrei 5780

7:45 PM - 10:00 PMAdult Lounge

 

At 88, Abraham Burszstein's place in the world is rapidly disappearing. His kids are selling his Buenos Aires residence and planning to move him to a retirement home. Without telling his family, Abraham goes to Poland, to keep a prommise he made over 70 years before to find the Christian friend who saved him during World War II. The klezmer score adds to the beauty of the sound track, a mix of Spanish, Yiddish, German, and Polish, adding color to a global adventure. The Last Suit, based on the writer/director's grandfather, confirms that heart, soul, love, and humanity still exist.

Thanks to a generous donation from Michael and Barbara Erlichman, we have the opportunity to celebrate our rich Jewish heritage through film. Screenings of dramas, comedies, and documentaries will be followed by discussions.
