Jewish Film Festival continues with "Arranged"

MANCHESTER - On Sunday, Feb. 10 at 4 p.m., ICM will screen "Arranged", a heart-warming film about two young teachers in Brooklyn, N.Y. - an Orthodox Jew and a Syrian Muslim - who share the fate of arranged marriages.

With family and cultural pressures on the one hand and with the rejection of traditional values by the outside world on the other, Rochel and Nasira turn to each other to help pull through this difficult time of their lives.

Called "a gem of a film," "touching and often hilarious," and "a must-see in this globalized world," this delightful film premiered at the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival and won top prizes at The Berkshire International Film Festival, The Brooklyn International Film Festival, The Washington Jewish Film Festival, The Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival, and The Skip City International D-Cinema Film Festival in Japan.

Mark calendars and plan on attending "Arranged" which is open to the public with a free-will donation.

In the event of snow, call Doris Bass (802-297-0167) or Rosalie Fox (802-867-0199) to confirm that the screening will take place, as planned.
