    San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 2014

    July 24-August 10, 2014

    This will be the second year I have written about the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, in its 34th year, but I won't be reviewing as many films this year, being a lot more selective. There are, I believe, 48 films, including shorts, and I only plan to review five or six, unless I get lured into watching more.

    The opening night film is the explosive documentary THE GREEN PRINCE, about a young Palestinian, son of a founder of Hamas who is disgusted by the brutal tactics it uses in prison and its many suicide bombings and is turned by Shin Bit and spies for Israel. "Mosab agrees to spy for Israel. For him, there is no greater shame. For his Shin Bet handler, Gonen, there is no greater prize: "operating" the oldest son of a founding member of Hamas." This was opening night film at Sundance too, and won the World DocumentaryPprize there. US theatrical release 26 September 2014.
