Mandel JCC's Leonard Krieger Cleveland Jewish FilmFest - Refusenik

Refusenik

(USA, 2008, 112 minutes, English/Russian/Hebrew with subtitles Director: Laura Bialis)

Thursday, October 15, 7 pm, Shaker Square

Refusenik is the first documentary to chronicle the 30-year movement to free Soviet Jews. It recounts how a grassroots effort, with origins in Cleveland, blossomed into an international human rights campaign. Told through the eyes of activists on both sides of the Iron Curtain, the film weaves first-person accounts of heroism, sacrifice and, ultimately, liberation.
