Film Series: "The Good, The Bad, The Funny"
Welcome back SJFF friends, fans and film lovers! This year's film features 30 amazing independent, internationally acclaimed documentary, narrative and short films, including Bethlehem, Israel's submission to the Academy Awards. Our film series "The Good, The Bad, The Funny" features 10 films focusing on Jewish and Israeli heroes (such as Miss Israel Linor Abargil, the human rights crusader of Brave Miss World), gangsters (Hunting Elephants) and black sheep (Amy Winehouse), and comedians (When Comedy Went to School).
Who better to illustrate this prism into American Jewish history and cinematic characters and caricatures than Seattle-based graphic novelist and 2013 Eisner Award-winning cartoonist David Lasky?
