The Triad Jewish Film Festival proudly presents SHE WOULDN’T TAKE OFF HER BOOTS, followed by a Q&A with the Producer and Cast.
The story is of one woman’s determination to sculpt the first Holocaust Memorial Monument in North Carolina commemorating the women and children of the Holocaust. We show her motivation, her drive, and the people that helped her dream become a reality. The film puts faces, names, and stories to what the monument represents. Survivors of the Holocaust do not live far away. They live here in Greensboro. They work with us. They are our neighbors. The film gives three of them an opportunity to tell their stories. One is the story of a boy who survived multiple concentration camps and the other is of two cousins hidden during the war by their brave and courageous mothers. The monument is named in honor of the cousins’ mothers. Join us as we start a movement to educate the next generation of the dangers when people are marked as “other.”
About the Triad Jewish Film Festival
The annual Triad Jewish Film Festival (TJFF) presents the best and brightest cinematic moments from Israeli and Jewish cinema, and affords movie-goers the opportunity to see Jewish films that are not readily available in theaters. Our films allow patrons the opportunity to unpack the various scintillating yet often challenging themes that surface as part of the TJFF viewing experience. The high quality of the films and the Jewish themes build community — and lift the human experience in a way no other medium does. Join us for our film festival, both virtual and in person from January 28, 2024, through February 11, 2024. TICKETS AVAILABLE AT MYTJFF.COM
