Seventh Night of the 2021 Hanukkah Film Festival (Nov 28-Dec 5)


Past and present meet upon the discovery of an old, mysterious photograph that will end up tying together Christian and Jewish students in search of the truth. Trying to unravel the mystery behind the portrait, the boys embark on a journey through a night of horror that cannot be forgotten: the raid of the Roman Ghetto.

A talented ensemble injects youthful energy into this inspiring interfaith story about the importance of memory, coexistence and reconciling generational frictions.

  • Part detective story, part high school drama, part interfaith love story and part plea for religious tolerance, 'Starry Sky' is a film for all ages.
