      “The Jewish Cardinal”

              Sunday, February 26th at 2 pm

Ilan Duran Cohen’s film concerns the amazing story of the Jewish-born
Archbishop of Paris, Jean-Marie Lustiger.

No, its title is not an oxymoron. Rather, “The Jewish Cardinal” refers to
Jean-Marie Lustiger, a Jew who converted to Catholicism at a young age
and, after joining the priesthood, quickly rose up the ranks to become
Archbishop of Paris and a chief advisor to Pope Jean Paul II. Ilan Duran
Cohen’s revelatory biopic recounts this fascinating tale in thoughtful and
compelling fashion, aided by the superb lead performance by Laurent Lucas.

Born the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, Lustiger and his sister were
sent to live with a Catholic woman in Orleans during the German occupation
of France in 1940. Against his parents’ wishes, he decided to convert when
he was just 13 and was baptized. By the time the war ended, his mother had
been murdered in Auschwitz, while his father survived.

The story’s chief dramatic element revolves around a dispute concerning
the controversial installation of a convent by Carmelite nuns on the
Auschwitz grounds, prompting Lustiger, who obviously had deep emotional
ties to the site, to question his religious allegiances.

Although it will obviously appeal to religious audiences -- it has already
played in nearly a dozen Jewish film festivals -- The Jewish Cardinal features
a rare nuance that should interest the non-faithful as well.  Come join us!
