0 Comments on this event

On March 5 and 7, two Dutch films will screen at The Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. Many of the festival's choices showcase personal journeys of discovery wherein people hunt for the truth about themselves and/or those close to them. On March 5 (6:15 PM), the Dutch historical drama film 'The Menten Affair' by Tim Oliehoek will screen. Remarkable, riveting and profoundly moving are just some of the descriptions that best describe this drama based on the real-life story of Hans Knoop, former editor of a Dutch news magazine. In the mid-70’s, Knoop courageously pursued the investigation of mega-millionaire Pieter Menten, who he suspected was a war criminal. Stellar performances and a taut script make this drama a powerful film about the pursuit of justice and one man’s dogged persistence for the truth. Watch the trailer with English subtitles here and get tickets for the screening here.

On March 7 (7:30 PM), Job Gosschalk's comedy 'Moos' will screen. 'Moos' is the name of a 20-something woman. The reconnection to her childhood friend Sam convinces Moos that there is more to life than working in her father’s textile shop, cooking and cleaning. Emboldened, she sets out to accomplish her dream: studying at a prestigious performing arts academy. Get tickets for the screening here.

Later this month 'Moos' will screen at the New Jersey Jewish Film Festival (March 19 - April 2): on March 20 at 7:30PM and March 30 at 12:30PM.

April 30, 'Moos' will also screen at the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival
