Room with a view
For its latest season, the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival debuts a stealthy repertoire of flicks and, not to mention, wonderful opportunities to schmooze (a Christmas event is in store, FLIX AND CHOPSTIX, where anyone can get a taste of what itâ€™s like to be Jewish on Christmas: Mel Brooks reels and Chinese take-out). Writer and director Sharon Bar-Zivâ€™s first feature, Room 514, is on the festivalâ€™s lineup. With a special mention at Tribeca Film Festival for best new director, winner of best feature film at Brussels Jewish Film Festival, and nominated for best actress (Asia Nefield, who fronts the cast as an Israeli Defense Force soldier) at the Israeli Academy Awards (bet you didnâ€™t know Israel had their own Oscars), the film is a gritty insiderâ€™s look at Israeli politics. The screening is followed by a discussion with former IDF soldier Chen Rahanim. (Tess Cutler)
