Participants are asked to view the film Irmi independently through the Boston Jewish Film Festival (see instructions below to purchase tickets). The film runs virtually from November 7 to 21. We’ll come together on a TBE Zoom call to discuss themes raised in the film. The TBE discussion will be led by congregants, Rabbi Debra Goldstein and Marsha Mirkin, PhD.

We have arranged a group ticket discount price. This discounted price applies to this film and a related BJFF follow-up conversation. On Monday, November 8 at 7:00 pm the BJFF is presenting a live conversation with Irmi co-directors Veronica Selver and Susan Fanshel.

About Irmi: In 1906, Irmi Selver was born in Chemnitz, Germany, where she grew up, married, and began her own family. Nothing prepared Irmi for the upheavals and tragedy that were in store for her, or for the many times she would have to start her life over in an unfamiliar place. Irmi is a deeply personal film made by a daughter inspired by her mother’s story and spirit. It explores how unexpected events and chance encounters can shape a life and reveal its true nature. Using Irmi’s memoir—beautifully read by the actress Hanna Schygulla and with a richly emotional score by composer, Todd Boekelheide, the film is a portrait of a woman whose strength, resilience, and joie de vivre could not be vanquished even in the face of unimaginable loss.
