Annette Zelman
"The Story of Annette Zelman" (Promotional still)

It’s 1942 in Nazi-occupied Paris. Annette Zelman is a 20-year-old Jewish art student who falls in love with Jean Jausion, her Catholic classmate. The pair dream of building a life together. But Jean’s parents are opposed to the match—and ultimately denounce Zelman to the Gestapo, which deports her to Auschwitz. A World War II Romeo and Juliet story with an equally tragic ending, “The Story of Annette Zelman” plumbs the depths of human passion, prejudice, and betrayal. Based on actual events told in the book “Juifs sous l’Occupation (Informing on Jews during the Occupation)” by Laurent Joly.

Followed by a live conversation with director Philippe Le Guay and author Heather Dune Macadam (“Star-Crossed: A True Romeo and Juliet Story in Hitler’s Paris”) on Zoom, moderated in-person by BJF artistic director Lisa Gossels.
