THE INVISIBLES

Directed By: Claus Räfle
Studio: Greenwich Entertainment

Official Synopsis: While Goebbels infamously declared Berlin “free of Jews” in 1943, 1,700 managed to survive in the Nazi capital. Claus Räfle’s gripping docudrama traces the stories of four real-life survivors who learned to hide in plain sight. Moving between cinemas, cafés and safe houses, they dodged Nazi officials and a dense network of spies and informants. Yet their prudence was at odds with their youthful recklessness, prompting them to join the resistance, forge passports, or pose as Aryan war widows. Masterfully weaving these story threads together, The Invisibles is a testament to the resourcefulness, willpower and sheer chance needed to survive against incredible odds.

Starring: Maximilian Mauff, Alice Dwyer, Ruby O. Fee, Aaron Altaras, Victoria Schulz, and Florian Lukas

JIHADISTS (SALAFISTES)

Directed By: François Margolin & Lemine Ould Salem
Studio: Cinema Libre Studio

Official Synopsis: Banned in France (released as ‘Salfistes’), JIHADISTS goes deep into the heart of the Salafi movement, to reveal the inner workings of extremist Islam. A pair of Western filmmakers were granted unparalleled access to fundamentalist clerics of Sunni Islam who proselytize for a “purer” form of Islam–including jihad of the sword–in Mali, Tunisia, Iraq and Afghanistan. Their theoretical interpretations are juxtaposed against images and footage from recruitment videos to show the hardline application of sharia law. Without experts contextualizing these events, the film, which inspired the Oscar-nominated feature, “Timbuktu”, paints a stark portrait of everyday life under jihadi rule.
