Now that youve caught up on the latest releases over the holidays, and with movie studios entering the dumping ground season, its time again to settle in for some lesser-known celluloid. Though it might seem as if small film festivals hit Miami every other week, hang in there: This one has been around awhile. Its the tenth-annual Miami Jewish Film Festival.
Today, for the early risers and documentary lovers, you can catch a free presentation of Shoshana: A Life Beyond Survival (10:30 a.m.), the story of a woman who fled to Shanghai from Germany, only to live under Japanese occupation. For something a little later and closer to home for parents and the young at heart, try Glow Ropes (8:30 p.m.), a mockumentary about a bar mitzvah MC.
