Cleveland Jewish FilmFest- Past LifeDate: September 7, 2017Time: 7:00 pm
Past Life is on Stand-By. When a film is on Stand-By we are no longer selling tickets in advance. This does not mean that we are sold out and usually, everyone on Stand-By is able to see the film.
One-hour before show time, we start selling Stand-By tickets at the theater on a first-come, first-served basis. Ten minutes before the film begins, standby patrons are admitted, as space permits until the theater is full. We are usually able to accommodate everyone on Stand-By. If we sell out and are not able to seat everyone, please accept our apologies. Anyone who is unable to be seated will be immediately refunded their ticket price.
Director: Avi Nesher • Israel/Poland • 2016 • Hebrew, English, German, Polish with English subtitles • 107 min
Inspired by true events, PAST LIFE tracks the daring 1977 odyssey of two sisters – one an introverted, ambitious classical music composer, and the other a combative liberal magazine editor. As they try to unravel a disturbing wartime mystery that has cast a shadow over their entire lives, they realize that freedom from the past requires painful sacrifices, as does the struggle to discover one’s unique voice.
