RJD at JCC’s Jewish Film Festival: The Mover
March 14 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join RJD at the JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival in Evanston at the Chicago Premiere of The Mover.
This award-winning Latvian feature film offers a gripping account of Žanis Lipke, a blue-collar worker honored as one of the ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ for his heroic deeds during the war. Despite his family’s hardship under successive Soviet and German occupations, Lipke embarks on a covert operation to save local Jews from Nazi persecution and certain death, moving them from the Riga ghetto to an underground bunker hidden on his property.
Following the screening, continue the conversation with Zbigniew Banas, film critic, teacher, and journalist.
