The Jewish Cardinal by Ilan Duran Cohen (France/Canada/US, 2012, 90 min.). This powerful fictional film is based on the true-life story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, a Polish Jew, who joined the Catholic priesthood and was appointed Archbishop of Paris. There, he openly celebrated his dual identity as a “Catholic Jew,” gaining him friends and enemies from the two religions. Lustiger’s split allegiance is tested when a group of Carmelite nuns decide to build a monastery on the edge of Auschwitz. Where will Lustiger stand? In French with English subtitles.
