Group exhibition of seven critically acclaimed painters committed to abstract painting. Eschewing the depiction of realistic imagery, all have found continual fascination with abstraction as the thread to infinite possibilities. Their paintings tie the formal arrangement of the basic elements of art to a vast array of social, intellectual, emotional and perceptual influences. The results are exquisite individual paintings that are resounding visual experiences. Featuring: Timothy App, Dan Dudrow, Dennis Farber, Carol Miller Frost, Bill Schmidt, Jo Smail, and Michael Weiss.

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.
