CHLOTRUDIS SOCIETY FOR INDEPENDENT FILM at the BOSTON JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL: ‘THE WOLBERG FAMILY’

The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film (CSIF) is pleased to be part of the 21st annual Boston Jewish Film Festival, one of New England’s longest-lived and most acclaimed film festivals. Chlotrudis will be the Community Partner of THE WOHLBERG FAMILY (LA FAMILLE WOLBERG) for the films two screenings.

Set in contemporary France, Simon Wolberg is mayor of a provincial town, still head over heels for his wife, a little too involved and over-invested in the lives of his two children, and a bit worried for his father. This debut feature from actress and screenwriter Axelle Ropert was a highlight of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, THE WOLBERG FAMILY is a classic family melodrama of the best kind. It will be screened on 11/5 at 7:45 pm in the Barbara Lee Theater at the Institute of Contemporary Art on Boston’s waterfront, and on 11/12, 9pm at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Individual tickets are $12 ($10 students, seniors, members).

BJFF is one of several local and regional film festivals or special film events Chlotrudis has partnered with and supported, for over a decade, as part of its mission to bring more independent films to the attention of independent-minded film audiences.
