Cutting Room for March 21

  • Don’t worry, I promise I’m not lying and the following film series Israel. Get it? “is-real?” It’s funnier out loud, so remind me to tell it to you again in person. Anyhoodle, Film Streams (filmstreams.org) is collaborating with The Natan and Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies at UNO and the University of Nebraska Foundation to bring a downright Judaic film series to The Ruth Sokolof Theatre on the last three Thursdays in April. It all starts on April 12 at 7 pm with Restoration, which will be followed by a post-show discussion led by Dr. Ran Kuttner from Creighton University School of Law. Then on April 19 at 7 pm, Happy You’re Alive will be screened, with a Q&A with director Hilla Medalia after. Finally, on April 26 at 7 pm, Footnote will be shown with a post-show discussion led by Dr. Moshe Gershovich From UNO. This is can’t-miss cool kosher cinema. Props if you mentally pronounced that last “C” as a hard “C.”
  • Although it goes against my strong belief that the infiltration of text speak into everyday life is marginally worse than an infestation of smallpox, Can U Feel It is coming to Omaha. It’s a documentary about the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, which is where DJs and producers put on an epic extravaganza of dance music enjoyed by thousands of screaming fans who are totally not high on drugs…they just think hands are “so weird.” So if you like the feeling of hearing pulsating sound but prefer to not be sweat on by strangers, head to AMC Oakview 24 (amctheatres.com/Oakview) on Thursday March 22. Actually, with the devolution of in-theater behaviors these days, I can’t actually promise the no-sweating-on-by-strangers thing.
