Event Description
Hannah Cohen's Holy Communion, Mum's Hairpins, Faces of Genocide, And Then Violence

Hannah Cohen's Holy Communion


‘Hannah Cohen’s Holy Communion’ is about a 7 year old growing up in 1970’s Ireland who can’t wait to make her Holy Communion – but she’s the wrong religion!


This is a heart-warming tale about a little girl, and the lengths she’s prepared to go to, to be just like all the other little girls. This film explores a rarely glimpsed Ireland, as seen through the eyes of a middle class Dublin Jewish girl. An Irish/Jewish film with an international feel, the beauty of this story lies in its simplicity, humour, and the universal desire to fit in.


Mum's Hairpins


Jewish shtetl, Ukraine, 1941. A box with mother's hairpins - the only thing left from his family - is Yasha's last chance to escape German invaders and rescue his new friend, a wounded goat kid.


Faces of Genocide


Among the countless ways we humans have found to brutalize one another, genocide is arguably the worst It is aimed at obliterating, through violent acts, the members of a targeted race, ethnicity, religion, or nationally affiliated group. What has kept humanity from eradicating this shameful legacy dating back centuries? Why do nations value sovereignty over human rights? Has any progress been made? Faces of Genocide addresses these questions. And if the statistics numb us to these crimes, Faces of Genocide gives us the opportunity to listen to the gripping personal stories of survivors of 20th and 21st century genocides. We learn much from them.


And Then Violence


Rebecca, 22, is a secular, Jewish, Parisian, law student. After the recent Paris terror attacks, and in an increasingly violent and anti-Semitic context, she questions her identity. Has she become a target in this country she so dearly loves?
