Tucson International Jewish Film Festival: Persian Lessons In-Person Screening

January 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Tucson International Jewish Film Festival: Persian Lessons In-Person Screening

2020 / France / 127 minutes / French, Persian, German with subtitles

It is 1942. Gilles, a young Belgian man, is arrested by the SS alongside other Jews and sent to a concentration camp in Germany. He narrowly avoids execution by swearing to the guards that he is not Jewish, but Persian. This lie temporarily saves him, but then Gilles is assigned a seemingly untenable mission, to teach the Persian language to the officer in charge of the camp’s kitchen.

Sponsored by Tamar and JR Bergantino
