Last night I went to see a screening of Various Positions, the award-winning film by Vancouver film-maker Ori Kowarsky. It was a very good film, which depicted the relationship between an Orthodox Jewish college student and his alluring but troubled and not very Jewish girlfriend Cheryth. Family crises and relationship turmoil ensue. After the film we had a Q&A and a reception with Ori, where we learned about the differences between interlaced video and 24 frame-per-second film, and also that every guy in the audience has dated someone like Cheryth.
Do try to see the film if it's showing in your area. If you happen to be involved in selecting Jewish films for organized events, you should consider the film for your program.
I look forward to Ori's next effort! And to more film events organized by The Warren ReportPosted by Stefan Sharkansky at September 17, 2003 11:11 AM
