A Starry Sky Above the Roman Ghetto

Tickets on sale!

After discovering an image of a little girl in a bewildering old photograph, high school student Sofia becomes compelled to probe the history of Rome’s Jewish ghetto during World War II. As details emerge—the girl’s name, her devastating separation from her parents during a Gestapo raid, and her rescue by a nun—Sofia brings Jewish and Christian teens together to honor the girl’s memory by staging an original play. The talented young ensemble presents this inspiring interfaith story about the importance of memory, coexistence, and reconciling generational pain.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

“Part detective story, part high school drama, part interfaith love story, and part plea for religious tolerance, Starry Sky is a film for all ages.”
Bruce Kahn, Atlanta Jewish Times

This film is part of the Jewish Film Festival 2021 series.
