Dir. Ilan Duran Cohen (90min, France, 2013)

Narrative
Mid-Atlantic Premiere


The Jewish Cardinal is based on the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his Jewish identity even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joined the priesthood.


Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope John Paul II - and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities - and may be forced at last to choose a side.
