DC premier of Daniel Burman's "The Tenth Man" at the DCJCC
On the 200th anniversary of the independence of Argentina, the Embassy of Argentina and the Washington Jewish Film Festival will present The Tenth Man by the award-winning director Daniel Burman. A sharply-observed comedy that takes on the intricacies of identity, home and family. After years away, Ariel is summoned by his distant father Usher to his childhood home in the bustling Jewish quarter of Buenos Aires, known as El Once. During Purim, Ariel seeks to reconnect with his dad, who runs a Jewish charity. Usher is regarded as a big macher in the close-knit community, but was frequently absent from his son’s life. The program is part of the Washington Jewish Film Festival’s fall season.
