The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades screens “Amor” as part of its IAC Cinematec Israeli Film series on Sunday, January 21. The series is designed to bring people together to see acclaimed Israeli films and participate in unique dialogues with film experts.
“Amor” is about an abstract artist who, after wandering around Europe for three years, returns home to his small farming village in Israel. The village also is home to a former dancer, who now is paralyzed and has no will to live. The film explores the demands love can make, and how memories are both fragile and fleeting — but sometimes all we have.
The screening is been made possible in collaboration with the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey’s Israel Film Festival. Tickets available at www.jccotp.org/israeli-center-special-events. For more information or to register, call (201) 408-1427.
