Cary
Triangle Jewish Film Festival
Galaxy Cinema—The Triangle Jewish Film Festival begins its third annual run at Cary's Galaxy Cinema today. A full slate of 11 films from throughout the world highlights a strong, diverse program that kicks off at 10 a.m. with a showing of Doubletime, Stephanie Johnes' film about The Bouncing Bulldogs, the Chapel Hill-based double-dutch jump roping team. Coach Ray Frederick and the Bulldogs will perform at 12:15 p.m.

Attendees have another chance see Durham: A Self-Portrait, Steven Channing's historical ode to the Bull City, which enjoyed sold-out screenings during its initial run in November. Joining this film on a double-bill is Down Home, a work-in-progress documentary that takes a look at Jewish history in North Carolina.

Several films hail from Israel, including Sweet Mud, which won the Dramatic World Jury Award at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and the Israeli Academy Best Film of 2006, and the documentary Souvenirs, which traces an older man's "escapades" during the time he fought in the Netherlands as a part of the Jewish Brigade during World War II.

The terrific film Starting Out in the Evening, starring Frank Langella, returns after a brief Triangle run earlier this year. Family Law was Argentina's Oscar submission of 2007 and tells the story of a man adjusting to being a husband and father. And Sixty-Six (pictured above), starring Helena Bonham Carter, is a comedy about a young British boy's misfortune of having his bar mitzvah fall on the same day as the 1966 World Cup Final, which was hosted and won by England. —Neil Morris
