Joel,

I have been increasing interested in 1945 myself. Read this review that
came up in my research ... 1945 review link http://nycmovieguru.com/
nov1st17.html . Let's discuss this further tomorrow.

California Typewriter and Karl Marx CIty are docs that have come to my
awareness. Have you looked at either of these? Also was Zama in
consideration at some point?

Bob

Considering the cool turn to the weather, I certainly hope everybody’s
power and heat situation is back to normal. Alice and I were extremely
fortunate, but lots of people had a pretty uncomfortable and frustrating
week last week. I hope everybody is planning to be at tomorrow’s meeting at
RRSQ at 10:00.



I know I have been lobbying for “1945,” but I am on the mailing list for
Menemsha Films and they have been sending me promotional e-mail about the
film. This is the second time they have sent me this excerpted scene from
“1945.” I think it does a pretty good job of establishing the tone for how
the town is responding to the arrival of the two Jews. You may also want to
read the Film Comment online article focusing on “1945.”
https://www.filmcomment.com/blog/deep-focus-1945/ The only caveat I would
make about it is that it definitely needs to be shared with a *[Spoiler
Alert Warning!]*. I don’t think there’s a lot it holds back in describing
what happens in the film.



Anyway looking forward to seeing everybody tomorrow!



Joel

On a summer day in 1945, an Orthodox man and his grown son arrive in a
small village in Hungary while the villagers prepare for the wedding of the
town clerk's son. The townspeople – suspicious, remorseful, fearful, and
cunning – expect the worst and behave accordingly.

A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and
historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that
reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed sentiment: you can’t go home again.
