Beyond the unifying power of sports, BJFF films explore a wide array of timeless themes, such as childrearing, women's empowerment, intermarriage, courage in the face of adversity, and self-acceptance. Lauer echoes Pastor's enthusiasm for how the BJFF combats prejudice by sharing universal values and issues through a Jewish lens. A self- proclaimed film lover, Lauer comments, "I believe that film touches people and changes attitudes by exposing audiences to the multifac- eted aspects of other cultures and societies." A sampling of films from the 2014 Festival illustrates the broad appeal of the selections: n 112 WEDDINGS ★ "A strikingly honest take on the institution of mar- riage, both heartwarming and heartbreaking." The filmmaker revisits 9 of the 112 couples whose weddings he captured to see what happens when the fairy tale ceremony and celebration are over and everyday life settles in. 124 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 5 The Boston Jewish Film Festival M E D I A B A K E R Y 2 0 1 5 F E S T I V A L F A C T S DATES November 4-16 TICKET PRICING $16 general admission $14 students and seniors $300 all-access Festival pass Discounted tickets available for groups of 10 or more.
