In its final week at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, the 27th annual Baltimore Jewish Film Festival, which Baltimore Style featured as a past “Get Out” highlight, will include two Maryland premieres.
The first premiere on April 26 the U.S. documentary “Stateless” (2014). Directed by Michael Drob and co-presented by the Jewish Museum of Maryland, the Russian-language documentary follows the thousands of Soviet Jews who fled the USSR in the late 1980s only to get stranded in Italy because of American policy changes. Drob will also serve as a guest speaker.
The festival closes on April 28 with “The Art Dealer,” (2014) an intriguing French thriller directed by Francois Margolin. The film, in French with English subtitles, follows a Jewish woman who sets out to recover family paintings that were stolen by the Nazis—and during her search, she discovers some unanticipated family secrets.
