ICYMI Film Series
Keep Quiet (NR)

Tuesday, October 10 at 7:00 p.m. - $5 Admission

Our new ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) Film Series will highlight those films that didn't get a run in Central Ohio or left before they gained traction with audiences. Admission is just $5. Drexel Members get free popcorn!

Our first offering is the documentary Keep Quiet. It's the story of an anti-Semitic far-right politician's astonishing transformation after finding out he is Jewish. From filmmakers Joseph Martin and Sam Blair, the doc is rated 100% on RottenTomatoes.com by both critics and audiences.

"This expertly made, highly dramatic film achieves must-see status for the inevitable light it sheds on the persistence of toxic racial hatreds not just in Hungary but worldwide." Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com. Read the FULL REVIEW.

This screening is presented by the Drexel Theatre and the Columbus Jewish Film Festival. Buy tickets HERE.
