‘Capital Classics,’ ‘5777: A Year in Review’ and the AFI Latin American Film Festival all hit the screen
“5777: A Year in Review”
For Rosh Hashana, the Washington Jewish Film Festival is celebrating the Jewish new year by looking back at 5777 — the year coming to a close on the Hebrew calendar — and remembering Jewish artists and filmmakers who died during the year. The series “5777: A Year in Review” includes two films that feature Leonard Cohen’s music (the documentary “Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man” and Robert Altman’s “McCabe & Mrs. Miller”); Carrie Fisher gets a nod with “Postcards From the Edge,” which she wrote; and movies featuring Martin Landau and Debbie Reynolds (not a Jewish mom, but she played one on TV) are also on the slate.
Edlavitch D.C. Jewish Community Center, 1529 16th St. NW; through Sun., various times, $12 per film.
