Sunday,  February 4th at 2 PM: Where Life Begins

  • Streaming online from February 4th, 5th, and 6th


Where Life Begins (2022) is an Italian and French film with English subtitles about an ultra-orthodox Jewish family from Aix-les-Bains comes to a farm in Calabria for a brief stay every year to carry out a sacred mission: harvesting citrons. Here Elio, the farm owner, meets Esther, the rabbi’s daughter, who is tired of the constraints imposed by her religion. Through this relationship, Esther will understand the importance of freedom and find her path, and, in the same way, Elio will find the peace he had lost for a long time.


The film bundle is $40 and each film is $10. Museum screening and online streaming are the same price.
