Louisville Jewish Film Festival: A STARRY SKY ABOVE THE ROMAN GHETTO

February 12 - February 14

A Starry Sky Above the Roman Ghetto

Italy
100 minutes

The discovery of a puzzling photograph sparks a student to probe the history of Rome’s Jewish ghetto and the fate of a little girl. When Sofia finds an old snapshot in a neglected suitcase, she’s mesmerized by the child’s picture. As details emerge—the child’s name, separation from her parents during a Gestapo raid, and rescue by a nun—Sofia commits to honoring the girl’s memory by staging an original play with classmates and friends from a nearby Jewish high school. But first, she must overcome the objections of concerned parents. A talented ensemble injects youthful energy into this inspiring interfaith story about the importance of memory, coexistence and reconciling generational frictions.

Winner of Audience Award at Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival.
