ANITA: ARGENTINA / DRAMA / SPANISH / SUBTITLED / 2011 / 104 mins

Directed by Marcos Carnevale, Anita is the story of a young woman with Down syndrome (Alejandra Manzo) who lives a happy, routine life in Buenos Aires, with her mother Dora (Academy Award nominee Norma Aleandro). One tragic morning in 1994, everything changes when Anita is left alone after the nearby Argentine Israelite Mutual Association is bombed (the deadliest bombing in Argentina’s history). As Anita wanders through the city, she learns not only to stand up for herself, but touches the lives of those around her, from an alcoholic to a family of Asian immigrants.

Registration will open by mid-November. Sponsors: EBIJFF, CCJCC, Cong. B’nai Shalom in partnership with Cong. Beth Emek and Cong. B'nai Tikvah.

You can watch the film anytime.  Admission is free but a minimal donation is requested to cover downloading costs for the film.
