Attend this film fest: JewishFilm.2012 at the ICA

Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not To Be (1940) managed to poke fun at the Nazis while underscoring their evil, and German director Leander Haußman takes a lesson from the master in his Hotel Lux (2011).

It screens as a presentation of JewishFilm.2012 at the Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave, Boston | April 26 @ 7 pm | $11; $9 students, seniors | 617.478.3100 or
