“The Jewish Cardinal” tells the true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism, joining the priesthood, and eventually becoming a Cardinal. When Carmelite nuns build a convent within the walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities - and may be forced at last to choose sides. Post-film discussion will be moderated by filmmaker and American Film Institute alumna, Valerie Schramm. Trailer and more on the Film Movment listing.
