I want to make a film about women - Karen Pearlman 

I want to make a film about women is a documentary love letter to Russian constructivist women. It brings to life revolutionary women artists of the 1920s and speculates on what they said, did, and might have created had it not been for Stalin’s suppression.

The Mirror - Joel Kohn

13-year-old Suzi has come to stay with her Grandmother, an ailing, cantankerous old-woman and also a survivor of the Holocaust. When Suzi discovers a mysterious, antique mirror in the basement, she accidentally opens a portal between time that allows her to cross over into war-torn Nazi Germany, where she befriends a young Jewish girl who is in hiding.
