ELIE WIESEL, JOHN TURTURRO TO SPEAK AFTER FORDHAM FILM FESTIVAL SCREENING

Fordham is holding its seventh annual Forum Film Festival through October 25, and this Sunday at 3 p.m. John Turturro and Elie Wiesel will make a special appearance to speak about the film “The Truce,” starring Turturro. “Based on Primo Levi’s memoir The Reawakening, this Francesco Rosi film depicts Levi’s journey home to Turin after having survived Auschwitz,” the description says.

The festival shows movies that touch on significant legal and social issues and then hold discussions afterward.

“Each movie is followed by a post-screening discussion with renowned artists, writers, public intellectuals, and members of the legal profession who have a particular connection to the film. Explore how the themes of justice and injustice continue to inspire the artistic imagination. Hear interesting stories and anecdotes. Get answers to your questions. And share your own ideas and viewpoints.”

The full schedule for the festival is here.

Tickets are $15. Buy them for The Truce here.
