Beyond the Mountains and Hills

Lieutenant-Colonel David Greenbaum is discharged after serving for 27 years, returning to his family who are more used to his absence than his presence. When a friend suggests working as a salesman, he sees this as an opportunity to get his foot into the door of the business world and make something of himself. But things don’t turn out as he expects. An accomplished and impressive film from one of Israel’s leading young directors about decent people living in a difficult reality.

Sacred Sperm

Sensitive and deeply complex, Sacred Sperm explores one of the most suppressed and hidden issues of the Orthodox Jewish Community: the sin of ‘wasting sperm’.

The film will be followed by a discussion with Prof Philip Alexander FBA, Emeritus Professor of Post-Biblical Jewish Literature, and Dr Alana Vincent, Senior Lecturer in Jewish Studies at the University of Chester.

Alone in Berlin

Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson play a married German couple, who, following the death of their only son in the war, start writing postcards to urge people to take a stand against Hitler and the Nazi regime. Deftly directed by French actor and filmmaker Vincent Perez and co-starring Daniel Brühl (Woman in Gold, Rush), this gripping and stylish drama portrays a devastating and singular act of courage.
