40 YEARS OF FILMMAKING IN ITS FINAL DAYS
DC, JxJ’s retrospective of director Aviva Kempner’s 40 years of documentary filmmaking may be coming to a close, but there are still plenty of screenings left to see this week!
Make your way to Cafritz Hall at the Edlavitch DCJCC, 1529 16th St NW, and check out what we still have in store:
The Spy Behind Home Plate Tonight, then a Double Header
The Spy Behind Home Plate screens tonight, 7:00 at the Cafritz Hall!
Then, this Saturday, JxJ will be screening the award-winning audience favorite The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg, Aviva’s 1998 documentary about all-star American hero Hank Greenberg, followed by a screening of The Spy Behind Home Plate afterward! This double feature of baseball icons starts at 6:00pm with Hank and moves on to Moe at 8:35pm! As an added treat, both films will feature an in-person intro by Aviva! This is your last chance to catch The Spy Behind Home Plate on the big screen in DC for now, so definitely don’t miss out!
