Jewish Film Festival at Lake Norman: “Wendy’s Shabbat/The Invisibles”

February 24 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Our Town Cinema –

A lively group of Jewish senior citizens observe Shabbat at the local Wendy’s fast food restaurant, with Hebrew blessings, along with burgers and fries.

In June 1943, when Germany was declared “free of Jews,” there were still 7,000 Jews in hiding in Berlin, protected by courageous citizens, while desperately trying to avoid deportation. Only 1,700 lived to liberation, and The Invisibles tells the stories of four of these survivors, interweaving their testimony with highly accomplished dramatizations, an unusual hybrid approach that brings edge-of-the-seat suspense to their years spent underground.
