- Jewish Film Fest announces lineup
By Mick LaSalle - Tuesday Jun 20, 2017
The Jewish Film Festival announced the program for its upcoming festival on Tuesday night, June 20, and the lineup looks appetizing, as usual.[...] if it were just a matter of someone Jewish having made it, then practically every American studio film made before 1950 — with the exception of the movies produced by Daryl Zanuck’s 20th Century Fox — could be called a Jewish film.Turns out, having a Jewish filmmaker alone is not enough to qualify a movie for the Jewish Film Festival.“It has to have some kind of Jewish content,” says Jay Rosenblatt, the festival’s program director.The one exception are films that get into the festival through “Tikkun Olam,” a small section of the festival devoted to films that are not necessarily Jewish in content but that express political or social ideals in harmony with Jewish values.[...] this year, the festival has a big coup for that category: “An Inconvenient Sequel,” Al Gore’s follow-up to his award-winning “An Inconvenient Truth.”The sequel, which picks up the story, is a mix of good news and bad — technologies that give hope, but a political situation in Washington that makes progress difficult.Directed by Rachel Israel, the film features lead characters, and actors, who are all on the autism spectrum.“What people don’t know about her,” says Rosenblatt, is that she was an incredible inventor and scientist, and she actually invented the technology called frequency hopping.[...] there’s “The Young Karl Marx,” from director Raoul Peck; and “Dina,” the winner of the Sundance Festival’s Grand Jury Prize for documentary filmmaking.“It’s kind of a companion piece to our opening film, because its subjects are also on the spectrum,” says Rosenblatt.[...] definitely of interest: “Gilbert,” Nell Berkeley’s feature-length portrait of the comedian Gilbert Gottfried, whose version of “the aristocrats” joke is raunchier than anybody’s.

By Lily Janiak - Monday Aug 7, 2017
Among the Bay Area’s myriad new play festivals, few are as influential as TheatreWorks’ New Works Festival, now in its 16th year.Many of the pieces that get workshopped in the annual event go on to be a part of main stage seasons at both the Silicon Valley company and others throughout the Bay Area and across the country.Opening weekend highlights include “My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding” (8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12), a musical from David Hein and Irene Sankoff, the Tony-nominated creators of “Come From Away”; as well as Kevin Rolston’s “Deal With the Dragon” (3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13), a solo show weaving multiple stories about the price we’re willing to pay to survive.The Shangri-Las (7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 13), a musical journey about the girl group of “Leader of the Pack” fame.
