STORY
An obsessively jealous husband, his sexy wife-actress, a sneaky Hollywood director, a happy-go-lucky drug dealer, a girl and her beloved dog, a hot-dog vendor with a vague past, a frustrated student on a risky mission, a mountaineer cleaning hotel windows, an elderly painter, a crew of paramedics with an unusual problem and a group of hungry nuns. A cross-section of the inhabitants of a modern city whose lives and passions are intertwined. An unexpected chain of events will decide the fate of many of them in just eleven minutes.11 Minutes feels like a roller coaster ride, as our attention moves rapidly amongst the various stories. The film is kinetic, frantic at times, contemplative at others, all in the service o a work that reflects the fragmented nature of our modern world.

Screening of “WE ARE HERE” (Jestesmy tu) by Francine Zuckerman @ Laemmle NoHo7

We Are here

Francine Zuckerman’s groundbreaking film excavates the fragile, shaky rebirth of Polish Jewish life. We Are Here is the story of five Jews in post-Communist Poland, each working to build their lives in new contexts of democracy and multiculturalism. But can there be new life within the borders of a country with the unmarked graves of three million Jews?

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with film producer Deb Filler and Yiddishkayt.

This film is dedicated to my parents:
Jack Zuckerman Annita Zuckerman
1920 – 1992 1926 – 2012

Folk dancing in the street, music, yummy food!

One exhibit of note will be a replica display of the finely crafted armor used by the 17th Century Polish Winged Hussars. 

 

The Polish way to say “Folk dancing in the street, music, yummy food, and more!” is Zabawa na calego! (Pronounced: Zabava na tsawego!) You already know that, right?

Don’t miss the Polish-themed art walk event for family and friends. Over fifteen Polish-American institutions, as well as the Polish Consulate, are collaborating to make the event extra special!

The fun takes place just two blocks east of the First Street Station of the Metro Blue Line.

Come for free dance lessons! Come to learn some Polish-language words and phrases! Come to chat and stroll and dig the friendly scene up and down the street closure area!

Let’s turn Long Beach into one Polish Town, just this one day!
