Seton Hill University's National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education has partnered once again with Film Pittsburgh to offer a special film screening as part of the annual JFilm Festival, which runs April 26 through May 6. This year's featured film is titled "The Last Suit," which tells the story of an 88-year-old Jewish tailor named Abraham who embarks on a long journey from Argentina to Europe to find the man who saved him from certain death during the Holocaust. A Rotten Tomatoes review states: "With its klezmer-driven score, evocative cinematography and fleet pacing, THE LAST SUIT approaches its weighty themes with a light touch that illuminates a serious story. And in its mix of Spanish, Yiddish, German and Polish it is a globe-trotting surprise, a late-in-life road movie with planes, trains and heart." The film is subtitled in English.
Admission for SHU community members by presenting valid SHU ID cards.
For the public, tickets will be on sale in April online at FilmPittsburgh.org and by phone at 412-426-FILM (Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.- 12p.m. only).
