Past life

A Night at the Movies
Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 pm 

Join us at the State Cinema in Stamford to see “Past Life,” part of the Jewish Film Festival of Fairfield County. Directed by Avi Nesher, and inspired by a true story, “Past Life” is part thriller and part emotional roller coaster as two Israeli sisters uncover just how their father survived World War II. The truth changes their family forever. Click here to buy tickets online
