Description: Visual photos consist entirely of Indian miniature paintings, while an off-screen narrator traces the rise of this art form within the courts of Akbar (1542-1605), who united what is actually India and Pakistan, and his son Jahangir (1569-1627). Two schools of the miniature paintings, done by anonymous artists, flourished after Akbar established unity and peace across what had been many smaller states: the Moghul (Islamic) school and the Rajput (Hindu) school. The Moghul paintings record the happenings of the court, while the Rajput school connects physical beauty and, in particular, the longing of girls to the transcendent values of the spirit.
Description: In March 1939, Hitler's units marched into Prague, Czechoslovakia. Jan Bodon, a young captain in the Czech Units - who also happened to be blond-haired, blue-eyed and fluent in German - was "asked" to join the Nazis. He promptly fled and joined the Czech Resistance Movement instead. In this strong documentary directed by Jan's son, Jean Bodon uncovers the truth not only about Jan's wartime experiences, but also discovers that his father was secretly a Jew in a country which underwent one of the biggest extermination campaigns of the war.

One has Camille Paglia explaining her methods of thinking. One has Annie Sprinkle explaining her approach to performance art, which contains inviting audience members to view her cervix with a speculum. One interview investigates a professional woman's preoccupation with sadomasochism. The fourth documents the life adjustments of an F2M (female-to-male) sex change who looks like a risky biker, with slick black hair, a matching motorcycle jacket, and tattoos.

Description: Many folks have heard of dogging but very several know what goes on in this secretive world. This intimate and compelling Real Stories movie provides an insight into why boys and girls engage in or watch sexual activity in front of strangers in public areas, under the cover of darkness. Dogging Tales is directed by award-winning photographer Leo Maguire - who made his critically-acclaimed debut in 2012 with Gypsy Blood: Real Stories. Interviews with doggers start in the 'real world' as their day draws to a close and they discuss their normal lives. As they go out they shed their daytime personas and Maguire accompanies them to lay-bys, woods and picnic spots around the UK that often double as dogging territories after dusk.

Description: Is it real what they tell in Spamalot (“You won’t create it on Broadway if you don’t have any Jews”)? Tracing Broadway’s Yiddish roots, and exploring back-stories behind many landmark shows from Showboat to Wicked, filmmaker Michael Kantor chronicles the special role of Jewish musicians in the creation of the modern American musical. This joyful and clever documentary details interviews with many theatre artists, rare archival footage and recordings from original Broadway productions, and unforgettable anecdotes (hearing about Ethel Merman’s irreverent behavior at a Passover Seder during the rehearsals for Gypsy will leave you in hysterics).
Description: In this hour, MSNBC goes inside the globe of Bryon Widner, a former skinhead "pit bull", as he undergoes painful treatments to remove the physical representation of the hate he had exhibited to the globe for more than half his life.

Description: Samy Szlingerbaum made his movie Dakh-Brisel (Brussels-Transit) in 1980, thirty years after any Yiddish detail movie had been produced. Szlingerbaum felt that the only method he should relate the storyline of his family’s find for refuge after Globe Fight II was in Yiddish. This Belgian-based filmmaker, deeply impacted by Fresh York experimental cinema, gives us a masterful blend of strong drama and stark documentary to say the storyline of postwar European Jewry. Home, as it had been, no longer exists, and all that Samy’s family wants is a zone in which to sink fresh roots.
Description: In TJFF’s 21 years, we’ve rarely seen a movie quite like this one. Filmmaker Marc Halberstadt is trying to receive back the property that his parents lost to the Nazis and accumulate 65 years of back rent. But he realizes that the land his family fled to and settled on in America had been seized from Native Americans, to whom, in fairness, he actually owes 65 years of back rent. Then it hits him—why not allow the Native Americans accumulate directly from the Germans? Slash out the middleman! He is joined by four Native Americans and travels to Germany to see if anyone will accept with this novel idea.

What follows is an uplifting and inspiring story.
Description: In 1972, the globe was shocked to learn that members of the Israeli Olympic Squad had been taken hostage by Palestinian terrorists. In this documentary, seven survivors of the squad recall what they witnessed and how they escaped. The men’s reminiscences and commentaries are strong in their honesty and openness. Four decades later, we re-live their hopeful comeback at the games, the hostage drama, the failed rescue attempt and the memorial service.
Description: For most women, “fluchkes” (a Yiddish word referring to flabby underarms) are something to “kvetch” about. For the group of female seniors, between the ages of 72 and 82, creating and preparing for a dance performance, fluchkes are just other badge of honour in a life lived to the fullest. Comfortable in front of the camera, every of these girls speaks candidly about aging, sex, and relationships. Director Ofer Inov follows this group of energetic girls through a year of rehearsals—through moments of hardships and self-doubt as well as moments of camaraderie, inner-strength and success.
Description: This visually stunning movie is both a travelogue of the lush landscape of Cameroon and an exploration of the frustrations of bringing First Globe innovations to a Third Globe country. Israel, recognized as a leader in drip-irrigation technology, shares its expertise with countries around the world. Mickey Arbel, Israel’s ambassador to Cameroon, has made it his point to persuade the residents of rural villages to adopt this system that would finally resolve their irrigation difficulties. However, old methods die difficult in Cameroon and things do not everytime go as planned. Director Jonathan Paz (The Galilee Eskimos, TJFF 2009) follows Arbel on a adventure that is by turns surreal, funny and frustrating. For the charismatic Arbel, it is also a adventure of soul searching and self-discovery.
Description: When photographer Eran Barak moves into an apartment in Haifa, he spends his days observing the neighbourhood: three high-rise residential buildings under construction, forever changing the neighbourhood; a photograph of two eternally smiling teenagers killed in a vehicle accident, taped to a tiny monument; an aging Nazi hunter looking for recognition. As he absorbs it all, these seemingly unrelated elements enter his apartment in the form of photographs that line his walls. Reminiscent of the work of Chris Marker, Barak’s Hunting Time is a poetic and moving meditation on memories and remembrance, history and documentation, reality and imagination.
Description: In this startling investigative piece, Canadian-Greek journalist George Gedeon, though not Jewish himself, focuses his camera on the historic and actual climate of attitudes among Greeks towards Jews. The Jewish population in Greece went from 70,000 prior to the Holocaust, to 5,000 today. During few visits to Greece and through interviews with Jewish leaders, Holocaust survivors and academics, Gedeon exposes the misinformed and intolerant views propagated by Greek mass media, church sermons and the general public.
Description: Director Chris Marker starts by recounting his childhood dream of visiting the town of Peking - a town he was once only able to admire in books. The viewer is taken on a adventure through this city, as if experiencing it from the mind and through the eyes of Marker. His thoughts and observations about the traditions, history, and banalities of daily life in Peking are woven together in elegant fashion.
Description: A vast, well-constructed collage of personal home films from the early 1930s to the mid 1970s that reveals the history of the Jewish state in methods that you have never seen before. Rescued from oblivion in drawers, basements and attics, this footage shows everyday family life unfolding alongside happenings that would shape the country. “The entire concept here is there is no one Israeli narrative,” told producer Arik Bernstein in an interview, “This is no official history. It’s not a left-wing look at history, or a right-wing look. These are private histories — tiny moments that create up a entire and present something of who we are.”
Description: Iranian-American filmmaker Mehrnaz Saeedvafa traces her adventure from growing up as young woman in Tehran to adjusting to life in America, while she reflects on how the movies of Jerry Lewis spoke to her as an outsider in both countries. Peppered with clips from Lewis’ films, as well as another Hollywood classics, that have been dubbed into Farsi, this short documentary is “an invaluable cross-cultural lesson,” told esteemed movie critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, who named Jerry and Me one of the greatest movies of 2012.
Description: Shot at Coney Island, Fresh York's legendary amusement park, over two years from 1974-1976, this pretty landmark of American experimental movie languished in semi-obscurity for three decades after its 1980 debut. Restoration was a complex process involving algorithmic pc programming deployed to synchronise sound with photos originally recorded (on monochrome Super 8mm film!) at the unusually slow rate of 18 frames per second. The effect is cinema as a miraculous time-travel machine, a city-poem which transports us to hidden corners that only a real Coney-Islander would know: a native like writer, director, producer and editor Paula Gladstone. She also arranged the soundtrack, featuring melody that ranges from Duke Ellington to the Drifters ("under the board-walk, down by sea...") and, most stirringly, LaBelle.
Description: Pablo needs to stop smoking. Why? Because his wife, family and doctor tell he should. But Pablo is a stubborn man. He has worked in the mercury mines of Almadén, Spain, risking his life daily. He has had five severe heart attacks and smoked 20 Winston's a day since he was 12. Actually in his seventies, Pablo spends most of his day in front of the TV, surrounded by a cloud of smoke, with his back turned firmly towards a village that has lived through better times. Pablo represents the last generation of Almadén mercury miners, an age-old profession with over 2,000 years of history. Through a straightforward depiction of life's daily moments, Pablo's Winter explores the decay of the local mining culture, but above all, pays homage to its true protagonists: the miners and their families.
Description: Costa Botes takes us far, far north of his native Fresh Zealand for this magical documentary about man's four-legged friends. Brian Ladoon is an eccentric, lone-wolf Canadian who has dedicated his life to saving the extinction-threatened Qimmiq - a species of canine used by local Inuits for centuries as hunting-hounds but actually abandoned in favour of motorised skidoos. The snowy wilds of remote northern Manitoba create for a stirringly picturesque backdrop for footage of the rugged but irresistibly pretty Qimmiq, not to mention the polar bears who occasionally amble by. Doing their greatest to create an impact among such furry stage stealers are the crustily ornery Ladoon and his unflappably laid-back younger Kiwi assistant, former teen-TV pinup Caleb Ross.
Description: Long before O'Reilly and Beck, Morton Downey, Jr., was tearing up the talk-show format with his divisive populism. Between the fistfights, rabid audience, and Mort's cigarette smoke everytime "in your face," The Morton Downey Jr. Present was billed as "3-D television," "rock and roll without the music." Évocateur meditates on the hysteria that ended the '80s and ultimately its most notorious agitator.

Description: A new fresh blend of observational documentary and tropical science-fiction, JOHN & JANE follows the stories of six call agents that respond American 1-800 numbers in a Mumbai call center. After a heady mix of American culture training and 14 hour night shifts, the job later begins to take its toll. Counter pointing the fluorescent interiors of late night offices and hyper-malls with the uneasy currents swirling around the characters, JOHN & JANE discovers a young generation of urban Indians that are beginning to live between the true and the virtual. However, this futuristic globe of American aliases and simulated reality is not science fiction, these are the times in which we live. JOHN & JANE raises disturbing questions about the nature of private identity in a 21st century globalised world.
