July 8. 4 p.m., 2 films: “Beneath the Ink” - Inspired by current events, an Appalachia tattoo artist donates his services to erase symbols of hate from those seeking to reverse past, bigoted mistakes. “The Barn” - A captivating and honest film of a Holocaust survivor and his granddaughter who travel to Poland and reunite with his savior as they all share a journey of memory and rediscovery. Co-produced by Nancy Spielberg and Rachel Kastner. $7

July 8, 8 p.m., 2 films: “I Heart NY” - Celebrated Hungarian-Jewish graphic designer Milton Glaser shares the inspiration behind the creation of his iconic I ♥ NY logo. His love affair with the Big Apple is reflected in breathtaking imagery of the city’s boundless energy and cultural diversity. “The Mamboniks” - During the 1950s, free-spirited, mostly Jewish dancers from New York City fell head over heels for the mambo, a hot dance from Havana, Cuba. The film features this zany group of retirees, still dancing to the Latin rhythms. $10

July 15,4 p.m.: “Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People” - An inspiring American success story recounts the life and times of modern journalism’s founding father, relevant to the ‘fake news’ era. This superbly crafted biography heralds freedom of the press at a time when First Amendment rights are challenged. $7

July 15, 8 p.m.: “Rescue Bus 300” - A powerful and tense docudrama tells the story of the 1984 hijacking and daring rescue of Bus 300 on its way from Tel Aviv to Ashkelon. $10

July 22, 4 p.m.: “The Accountant of Auschwitz” - More than 40 years after serving as an SS officer at Auschwitz, Oskar Gröning told the world what he had done; his admission led to his trial for complicity in the murder of 300,000 Jews. A new generation is reopening investigations against the living perpetrators of some of history’s worst crimes. $7

July 22, 8 p.m.: “Holy Lands” - James Caan leads an all-star cast as a retired American cardiologist who leaves everything behind to become a pig farmer in Israel. This comedic family drama is a wry and moving tale of a dysfunctional family—with an ex-wife (Rosanna Arquette), an alienated son, and a perennial student daughter—striving for reconciliation and acceptance. $10

July 29, 4 p.m.: “Ask Dr. Ruth” A documentary portrait chronicling the life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America's most famous sex therapist. $7

July 29, 8 p.m.: “Leona” - A young Jewish woman from Mexico City finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love. There are no easy choices to be made as she struggles to take the best path. $10

Aug. 5, 4 p.m.: “Shoelaces” - This tender family dramedy portrays the knotty relationship between an aging, irascible mechanic and the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned long before. $7

Aug. 5, 8 p.m.: “The Unorthodox” - A disenfranchised Sephardic father whose daughter is expelled from a prestigious religious school just for her ethnicity, launches the ultra-Orthodox Shas Party, a nascent challenge to the ruling Ashkenazi establishment in this lively, crowd-pleasing drama. $10

Aug. 12, 4 p.m.: “93Queen” - Rachel “Ruchie” Freier is a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the ‘boys club’ in her community. She creates Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in NYC. $7

Aug. 12, 8 p.m.: “The Other Story” - Two rebellious young women, one fleeing the chaos of secular hedonism for the comforts of faith, the other seeking to escape her oppressive religious upbringing for sexual and spiritual freedom, cross paths unexpectedly in Jerusalem in this empowering drama. $10
