Shorts Program -2019
Looking for animation, documentaries, drama, and comedy all in one program? Each year a group of MJFF volunteers watches countless shorts and picks the best to create a program that truly fulfills the Festival’s mission to “enrich, educate, and entertain.” We hope you enjoy this year’s eclectic selection:
212 — Life and death as seen through the eyes of a nursing home staff member.
Bottomless — an animated cautionary environmental tale.
The Rabbi — A revealing confession by his favorite student rocks the world of a much-admired rabbi.
The Entertainer — A not so talented party entertainer spirals out of control at a young girl’s Bat Mitzvah.
Five Years After the War — The animated story of the son of a French Jewish mother and an Iraqi Muslim father who is a political refugee, who struggles to find his identity.
Justification — A young Tel Avivian is sitting in a coffee shop, preoccupied with her own thoughts when she is approached by a complete stranger with an urgent request.
