Have you heard the one about plastics in our reusable water bottles causing cancer? Or the one about what your grandparents did or didn't eat that might cause your children to be diabetic? Do you worry that what you put into your body today will affect your grandchildren’s health? Environmental exposure and genetic abnormalities are getting a lot of attention, and for good reason. Researchers are learning that everyday exposure to chemicals in our homes and workplaces, as well as stress, may be causing long-term harm to our health. This new research aims to protect our epigenome: the dynamic part of our genetic code that can be altered by environmental conditions. Join Susan Taymans, Ph.D., from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, to learn about changes in gene expression as a result of environmental factors. Taymans will describe actual cases of “ghosts”— where environmental effects are transmitted several generations along with no apparent changes to the genetic code.

Gaucher’s disease can profoundly affect those suffering with the rare genetic disorder. However, Los Angeles-based artist Ted Meyer's exhibit “Scarred for Life” and his other works show a different, multi-faceted view of his experience with this disease. Join Meyer for a revealing look at how art has helped him and his subjects overcome their own injuries or conditions.

RUSSENDISKO Dir. Oliver Ziegenbalg (96min, Germany, 2012) 
 In Russian and German with English Subtitles 
 Narrative 
 DC Premiere 

 Berlin 1989 – The Wall’s just fallen, and Jewish citizens from the Soviet Union are now free to immigrate to Germany. Vladimir and his best pals Andrej and Mischa seize their chance to leave Moscow for Berlin, which in the early nineties is one of the most exciting places on the globe. 

 Vladimir and Andrej quickly get permanent residence permits; Mischa, who is Russian but not Jewish, only gets a three month visa, while dreaming of starting a music career. Vladimir is more aimless, happy loafing about and helping out his friends. That is until he meets Olga, the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. ----- The best of international cinema returns to Washington as the Washington Jewish Film Festival takes over the capital city for its 24th year, bringing 64 films from 18 countries and 40 filmmaker guests including actor and director John Turturro and legendary Israeli filmmaker Avi Nesher. The film festival, the largest Jewish cultural event in Washington with over 10,000 attendees, takes place February 27 – March 9, 2014, and includes world, U.S. and Washington premieres of films from South Africa, Tanzania, Israel, Europe and the United States.
