Some of our new films that have us hooked this month

While managers of Swiss banks in the USA ruefully apologize for their tax evasions practices and customer data is disclosed to the American authorities, Rudolf Elmer, former auditor at bank Julius Bar, is indicted for violating the Swiss banking secrecy law on the Cayman Islands.
According to a U.S. Department of Justice estimate, police officers shoot and kill more than 10,000 pet dogs in the U.S. every year. This film takes audiences on a journey with pet owners through the tragedy of loss and pursuit of change in a legal system in which the very officers they challenge are an integral part.
Avraham, Ziggy, Schreiber, and Robinson form the uncrowned governing council of the “Teheran Children”. The four represent 217 Holocaust orphans who are now bringing legal action against the State of Israel for monies received from Germany for their rehabilitation. In their old age they have set out to battle the state they dreamed of.
America’s battle against childhood obesity is an issue too big for many to fully comprehend. With one in three children overweight, the epidemic is sweeping our nation at an unforgiving rate. But in spite of these odds, Bite Size showcases the stories of four inspiring kids who are fighting for their health one day at a time.
The film offers an extremely rare and poignant glimpse into pre-Stonewall LGBT life as it takes us to a New York City drag ball and follows the women through their daily lives. They talk about their double-lives — going out as women at night but living as men during the day, and how they take hormones and dream of “going for a change.”
