Radical Times

The Young Karl Marx directed by Raoul Peck (France/Germany/Belgium) 2017 is a follow-up work to I Am Not Your Negro.

This narrative feature deals with the collaboration between the youthful Marx and Engels during a troubling period of history.

Even though the two men come from different backgrounds, they share a deep antipathy toward the abusive power exercised by the ruling class.

While their writings and organizing efforts influenced many of the changes that followed, the social revolution they desired has yet to occur.

The film will screen a final time Saturday 5 August 2017 at the Smith Rafael in San Rafael during San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 37.

Dog Walker

Mr. Predictable directed by Rose Florentin (Israel) 2016 is about transformation.

The main character of this romantic comedy lives a meaningless, boring, middle-class life. Invisible and irrelevant to those outside his immediate circle.

An accident propels him toward a new direction, both unexpected and intriguing, offering not only passion but also genuine affection.

The film screens two more times in early August 2017 during San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 37. Contact Jewish Film Institute for more information and tickets.
