"Abe" at the SFJFF

JCHS is pleased to co-present “Abe” at the 39th San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (July 18-August 4, 2019). Starring Noah Schnapp of “Stranger Things,” “Abe” follows the story of a 12-year old boy from Brooklyn as he pursues his love of cooking and navigates complex relationships in his Israeli-Palestinian family. At a street fair, Abe meets an Afro-Brazilian chef who helps him use food as a way to unite his culturally diverse family. “Abe” screens at the Castro Theater on July 20 and the Landmark Albany Twin in Albany on July 28. Tickets are on sale at https://jfi.org/sfjff-2019/film-guide/abe.
This year’s SFJFF showcases 65 films from 13 countries, amplifying the voices of gifted filmmakers and artists who explore the complexities of Jewish life around the world. We’re so pleased to be a community partner for this year’s festival and we hope to see you there!
