"24 Days"

Based on a shocking true story, director Alexandre Arcady's film "24 Days" presents a harrowing view into the 2006 kidnapping of Ilan Halimi: from his torture at the hands of the Gang of Barbarians, to the nearly 700 phone calls, insults, and threats received by his family while the Parisian police fail to recognize the anti-Semitic hatred of his abductors. 

Presented in partnership with Lafayette College Hillel. Lafayette professor and author Robert Weiner will be the featured speaker.

$10 general community, $7 JCC members.
