You’re Invited: Film Screening of Oscar-Nominated “Beaufort” at the Sabes JCC

Don’t miss this event on September 13 at the Sabes JCC!

On Tuesday, September 13 at 7pm, the Sabes Jewish Community Center in Minneapolis will host a screening of Oscar-nominated film “Beaufort.”  The cost is $10 for the General Public and $8 for Sabes JCC Premium and Community Members.

After 18 years dug into a heavily fortified mountain deep in occupied Lebanon, the last Israeli soldiers enduring constant bombardment at the site of the ancient crusader stronghold called Beaufort receive orders to abandon their posts, detonate the warren of bunkers in which they’ve tenuously clung to life and victory, and come home. Amid redoubled shelling from Hezbollah, the fort’s brash, impossibly young commander Liraz (Oshri Cohen) struggles to keep himself and his men safe from a faceless enemy that would turn withdrawal into massacre, and transform a just cause into a lost cause.

Suspenseful, poetic, and heartbreakingly transcendent, the Oscar® nominated Beaufort is “a haunting anti-war movie” (The New York Times) and “one of those once-in-a-decade war pictures that reminds us what’s worthwhile about putting the ritualized barbarism of combat onscreen in the first place.” (New York Sun) Academy Award® NOMINE BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM. The film was directed by Joseph Cedar; 2007, Israel; 126 minutes; in Hebrew with English subtitles.
