Dough – Curmudgeonly widower Nat Dayan clings to his way of life as a Kosher bakery shop owner in London’s East End.      Understaffed, Nat reluctantly enlists the help of teenager Ayyash, who has a secret side gig selling marijuana to help his immigrant mother make ends meet. When Ayyash accidentally drops his stash into the mixing dough, the challah starts flying off the shelves and an unlikely friendship forms between the old Jewish baker and his young Muslim apprentice. In English.
Runtime: 94 Minutes.

The Last Mentsch – Born Menachem Teitelbaum, Marcus Schwarz has denied his Jewish heritage all his life. After surviving Auschwitz, he sought to forget the trauma by creating a new identity for himself in Germany, one without Jewish friends or ties. Now after attending a friend’s funeral, he suddenly decides he wants to be buried in a Jewish  cemetery. But much to his dismay, his word is not enough for the rabbis; he must prove that he is, in fact, Jewish. But with all his family gone and no remaining records, he has no evidence, save for the faded tattoo on his forearm. Marcus’s only hope is to return to the Hungarian village he grew up in to try to find proof of his birth. Needing a way to get there, he enlists a young Turkish woman to drive him. The unlikely duo set out on a road trip across Europe that will end up irrevocably changing them both.                                           In German, Hungarian, Hebrew, English, Yiddish with subtitles. Runtime: 93 Minutes.
