LA Film Festival and Facing History Themes

Posted by Mary Hendra on June 12, 2015

I love the LA Film Festival. Neither my husband or I have ever worked in the film industry. In the course of a normal year, we are lucky to see even 3 or 4 movies in the theater. In fact, we started going to the LA Film Festival just to support the festival's move to downtown since we live here. The first year we got a modest little "4-pack" of films - toughly negotiated between his love of action films and my quirky taste for some foreign films. They were fantastic.

Now, we go back every year, seeing 10 or 12 films in just a week!

This year, I was excited to see two films on the line-up which we have seen at different stages in the course of Facing History's work. Both of these films play June 14th and 16th.

With our continued need for tough negotiations to wittle it down to our top twelve (seriously!), I was glad I had already seen some phase of each of these projects already, and hope you get to see them this weekend!
