The Aaron Family Jewish Community Center of Dallas presents the 22nd annual Dallas Jewish Film Festival during select dates throughout September at Studio Movie Grill’s Spring Valley location. Programming includes 10 feature films such as documentary 'Sammy Davis Jr: I’ve Gotta Be Me,' Holocaust remembrance drama 'The Testament' and satirical comedy 'The 90 Minute War.' Many screenings will include a “talk back” session for viewers to dig deeper into the subject matter with experts.

This fascinating documentary tells the extraordinary experiences of the 550,000 Jewish American men and women who fought in World War II. In their own words, veterans both famous and unknown (from Hollywood director Mel Brooks to former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger) bring their war experiences to life. They narrate how they fought for their nation and their brethren in Europe, while at the same time struggling with anti-Semitism within their ranks. After years of struggle, they emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish.
