The Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival is honored to partner with the Phoenix Art Museum’s Latin American Art Alliance and the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts & Sciences to present a screening of Papirosen.
The film, which Variety called “an impressive contribution to Jewish cinema”, represents 10 years of filmmaking and turns the cameras on four generations of Argentinean Jews, including a grandmother who survived the Holocaust. Papirosen serves as a meditation on family, history, the importance of storytelling, and the power of cinema itself.
