Carol, a Spanish-American twelve year old girl brought up in New York, travels with her mother to Spain for the first time in the turbulent spring in 1938 to meet her mother’s family.  Her separation from a father she adores and her arrival in her mother’s native village brings out her innocent and rebellious nature which drives her to oppose conventional world new to her.  Carol’s trip takes her on an unforgettable and bittersweet journey into the world of adulthood.

4:00 p.m. showing: For My Father – Israel/Germany – Hebrew with subtitles
Tarek, a Palestinian forced on a suicide mission in Tel Aviv to redeem his father’s honor, is given a second chance when the fuse on his suicide vest fails to detonate.  Forced to spend the weekend in Tel Aviv awaiting its repair, Tarek is forced to live amongst the people he was planning to kill.  Tarek meets Israelis, finds love and is forced to make a life-changing decision.  He becomes caught between the men who sent him (who can and will detonate the bomb remotely within 48 hours) and the new love he has found among former enemies.

6:30 p.m. showing: Ocean of Pearls – USA – English
As a Sikh man, with a full beard and turban, Amrit Singh is often the target of racial profiling.  But when he sees his dreams of becoming Chief of Surgery at a state-of-the-art transplant center dwindle because of his appearance, Amrit goes against a tradition he’s maintained his whole life and cuts his hair.  When his compromises result in the death of a patient, Amrit begins to reexamine the value of the religious traditions he’d turned his back on.
