The Zookeeper's Wife

Wednesday, March 29 at 7:00 PM — Plaza Theatre, Main

In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, the Żabińskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer 

Sunday, April 2, at 2:45 PM — Plaza Theatre, Upstairs

Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) only wants to matter. Living a lonely life in the shadow of power and money, he uses any angle or connection to put himself in a position of significance. He is an opportunist, just not a very good one. Until he finally bets on the right horse by buying a pair of expensive shoes for Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), a lowly Israeli politician. When Micha becomes Prime Minister, Norman finds himself in the center of a geopolitical drama beyond anything he could have imagined.

ATLFF Closing Night Presentation
Menashe

Saturday, April 1 at 7:30 PM — Plaza Theatre, Downstairs

Deep in the heart of New York’s ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, Menashe, a kind, hapless grocery store clerk, struggles to make ends meet and responsibly parent his young son, Rieven, following his wife Leah’s death. Tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven’s strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken. Meanwhile, though Menashe seems to bungle every challenge in his path, his rabbi grants him one special week with Rieven before Leah’s memorial. It’s his chance to prove himself a suitable man of faith and fatherhood, and restore respect among his doubters.

The Executive Producer and Unit Production Manager Danelle Eliav are scheduled to attend.

The Closing Night Party (sponsored by Music Matters Productions) will be held from 9:00 PM to 12:00 AM at Old 4th & Swift — open to all Closing Night ticket-holders, as well as FILMMAKER, PRODUCER and ALL-ACCESS badge-holders (includes INDUSTRY, PRESS and WEEKEND 2). Wristbands for the afterparty will be distributed at the screening.

Tickets are $50 + $3.74 Fee (Get 25% off when you use the the code AJFF)
