JxJ FILM CLUB

We’re hosting a weekly live conversation through the JxJ Film Club. Each week, we’ll pick one of the titles offered on our Virtual Cinema platform and host a live discussion about it at the end of the run. No need to be a film expert, just be a film enthusiast!

On Thursdays, we’ll announce the week’s “assignment,” selecting one title from our Virtual Cinema. You’ll have until the following Wednesday at 5:00 PM to buy your ticket, watch the film, and RSVP to receive a link to join the video discussion. On Wednesday at 7:00 PM, we’ll host a virtual group discussion lead by our Artistic and Managing Director, Ilya Tovbis.

THE INTERPRETER

An 80-year-old translator, Ali Ungár, comes across a book written by a former SS officer recounting his war experiences in Slovakia. Ali realizes that one of the chapters may well describe his own parents’ execution. And so, armed with a pistol, he sets off to Vienna to look for the SS man and take his revenge.
