WoTRS Cultural Outing: NVJCC Jewish Film Festival
Friday, March 24 at 10:15 AM
Angelika Theater at the Mosaic, 2911 District Avenue, Fairfax, VA
The Northern Virginia Jewish Film Festival is one of our favorite and most popular WoTRS Cultural Outings. The films are always wonderful and this year is no exception.
Our Exciting Itinerary:
Film 1 - Breakfast at Ina's
Meet at 10:15 AM in the lobby of the Angelika Theater at the Mosaic and purchase your tickets at a special table set up in the lobby. A discounted price of $9.00 per film will be available to WoTRS members.
About Breakfast at Ina's: Ina Pinkney is a Chicago legend of the tastiest kind. Known around town as the “Breakfast Queen,” she has been feeding Chicagoans for the past 33 years – first, out of a small bakery and, most recently, from her beloved breakfast nook in the West Loop. Ina, who survived polio as an infant, now suffers the effects of post-polio syndrome, and made the decision to close the doors of her celebrated establishment in 2013. An undeniably outstanding chef and businesswoman, Ina is so much more. She is a community leader, a pioneer, a television personality, but most importantly, she’s the rare sort of person who’s found a way to transform her passion into a joy that extends into an entire city, and beyond.

Post-film discussion and Q&A with Ina!
Following the film we will enjoy a post-film discussion and Q&A with The 'Breakfast Queen' herself, Ina Pinkney.
Ina will then join us at Ted’s Bulletin for pay-your-own brunch and more conversation. Ina's new cookbook, entitled 'Ina's Kitchen: Memories and Recipes from the Breakfast Queen,' will be available for purchase on-site.
Second film - The Law
This thought provoking film is timely after the January 21 Women's march - it's a riveting political drama that recounts the true story of Simone Veil, France’s tenacious health minister and her groundbreaking struggle to legalize abortion in the fall of 1974. Against the objections of the opposition party, the Catholic Church, and even amongst some in her own party, Veil, a survivor of both Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, refuses to back down. Amidst increasingly vile personal and anti-Semitic attacks, Veil intensifies her efforts to upend society’s dangerous misconceptions about abortion and a woman’s right to choose.
