Virtual Film Viewing of “Saul & Ruby, To Life!”
June 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $5
The Florida Holocaust Museum is pleased to promote the the Tampa JCCs & Federation and the Jewish Federation of Florida’s Gulf Coast’s Jewish Film Festival and virtual airing of Saul & Ruby, To Life! to be viewed on Thursday, June 25th beginning at 3:00 P.M. The cost to view this film is $5.
Saul & Ruby, To Life! is an overwhelming joyful example of relationships, introduced to us through Saul, 94, a drummer, and Ruby, 90, an accordionist. Both Saul and Ruby are Florida Holocaust Survivors and musicians with an insatiable lust for life. When the producers began filming the duo, Saul and Ruby had recently formed The Holocaust Survivor Band, the first of its kind. Their dream was to one day perform their music in Poland, their homeland where they endured unimaginable trauma. Their mission then, and now, is to spread a message of world peace at a time when antisemitism and prejudice are growing throughout the world. Through the sharing of their music and stories, they have learned that they are also healing their own wounds while revealing their resilience.
The 24th annual Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival was originally set to run March 29 through April 5, but was postponed due to COVID-19. Now, the festival will be offered through a virtual version of the event from June 24-28, featuring 11 films, all previously selected for the originally planned event.
The complete schedule and purchasing information is available on the festival website www.tbjff.org. Those purchasing tickets are asked to do so at least 24 hours before the viewing window opens.
This documentary is proudly promoted by The Florida Holocaust Museum.
