Sept 5 My Hero Brother (Israel, 2016)

In 2011 Enosh Cassel decided to take his brother Hannan to Nepal on a three-week trek in the Himalayas. Israel's channel 2 featured a story about the trip, which caused a wave of enthusiastic responses throughout the country. Among these, many came from brothers and sisters of special needs children. This inspired Enosh, together with his friend Itamar Peleg, to create the project "My Hero Brother" with the goal of taking a group of brothers and sisters of young adults with down syndrome on
a similar trek. Presented by Robert Pyne (St Norbert) and family

Sept 19 | Loving Vincent (Poland, 2017)

After the death of his father, his aging mother and beautiful ex-wife seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son - until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again. 

Oct 17 | In Between (Israel, 2016)

IN BETWEEN follows three strong and independent-minded Palestinian women living in Tel Aviv. Away from the constraints of families and tradition, they find themselves “in between” the freedom they aspire to and the restrictions imposed on them by society. Laila, a successful lawyer thinks she's found love in the apparently open-minded Ziad. Salma, a DJ, falls for a beautiful doctor, but is forced to keep their love a secret from her family. Laila and Salma's hard partying lifestyle initially comes as a shock to the more traditional Nour. She is engaged to marry a devout Muslim, who is not the man he appears to be. Eventually, a shocking series of events will push these brave women to the limits and seal their bond of friendship.

Nov 7 | Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress(China, 2002)

In the early 1970s, teenage friends Ma Jianling and Luo Min are forced to move to a remote mountain village for re-education during China's Cultural Revolution.
