The Art of Silence (documentary)

While legendary pantomime Marcel Marceau entertained audiences on stages around the world, much of his tragic history and influence remains hidden off stage. Before he became a world-famous mime, he was Marcel Mangel, an aspiring Jewish actor who joined the French Resistance to save the lives of thousands of children orphaned at the hands of the Nazis. (Streaming available Jan. 22)

What’s new this year: CC for the hearing impaired

The Miami Jewish Film Festival has launched a new initiative that is dedicated to creating closed captioning for English language films premiering online through its virtual festival. By providing closed captioning to each of these films, MJFF will enable people with hearing and other disabilities to have better access to the virtual movies shown.
