"Transit": Boston Jewish Film Festival (1st showing)

Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St., Brookline, MA 02446


The Boston Jewish Film Festival will be held Nov. 5-17 at theatres in the Greater Boston area. Boston Workmen's Circle is a Community Partner for the films "The Pin," "Transit"and "Watchers of the Sky."



"Transit" explores the intersecting and rarely told stories of Filipinos in Tel Aviv, as the threat of a law deporting the children of migrant workers looms over their precarious lives. An examination of what it means to be a family and what it means to be a stranger within one's home and in a foreign land. The Philippines' official entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar.
  • Thursday, Nov. 6, 7 p.m., Coolidge Corner Theatre and Sunday, Nov. 9, 12:30 p.m., West Newton Cinema
