THURSDAY, JULY 11 2019. HEADING HOME: THE STORY OF TEAM ISRAEL

2018 (87Min) NR
Directed by:Seth Kramer, Daniel Miller, and Jeremy Newberger
Starring:
Ike Davis—- Cody Decker– Sam Fuld– Ty Kelly– Ryan Lavarnway– Jerry Weinstein– Josh Zeid

A stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth, Heading Home charts the underdog journey of Israel’s national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of defeat, Team Israel is finally ranked among the world’s best in 2017, eligible to compete in the prestigious international tournament. Their line-up included several Jewish American Major League players―Ike Davis, Josh Zeid and ex-Braves catcher Ryan Lavarnway―most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, let alone having ever set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul where they must debunk their has-been, wannabe reputations. With their Mensch on the Bench mascot by their side, the team laughs, cries, and does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.

Guest Speaker: SETH KRAMER
Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger are Ironbound Films. Headquartered in an old inn on the Hudson River opposite West Point, Ironbound creates documentaries for theaters, television, and the web. They produced and directed Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel.

JULY 25, 2019 THE HISTORY OF LOVE
2016 (134 min) NR

“Be it dip-pen on paper writing in Yiddish from Minsk in the 1940s or sheets of paper in a manual typewriter in NYC in 2006 or a Spanish-language volume from Chile being translated via computer, the importance of fashioning and transmitting words runs through the story with a brand of cinematic heft no text message is likely to equal.” LISA NESSELSON, Screen Daily

Director: Radu Milhaileanu
Written by: Radu Milhaileanu, Marcia Romano based on the novel by Nicole Krauss
Starring: Derek Jacobi, Eliot Gould, Gemma Arterton Sophie Nelisse, Mark Rendall
Languages: English, Yiddish
Based on American Author Nicole Krauss’ bestseller, “The History of Love” is a sprawling saga of undaunted ardor and merciless twists of fate. Spanning decades and continents the film’s central narrative begins in Pre-war Poland and follows Leo Gursky and Alma Mereminski, neighbors and sweethearts, whose romance is thwarted by the rise of fascism. Before the war Alma is sent to America; after the war Leo tries to find her, oblivious to the surprises that await him. Aided by a brilliant cast that includes Gemma Arterton and veteran actors Derek Jacobi and Elliot Gould, director Radu Mihaileanu deftly weaves the many threads of Krauss’ novel into a soaring epic that touches on the duties of Jewishness, literature, and love.

We will talk about everything from how they decided what to film, the path to funding, the sort of story they wanted to tell, and what story ended up being told, and all the excursions along the way.
