Just Charlie

View Screenings

Film Description:

Young soccer star Charlie has the world at his feet. With a top club desperate to sign him, his future is seemingly mapped out. But the teenager sees only a nightmare. Trapped in the body of a boy, Charlie is torn between wanting to live up to his father’s expectations and shedding this ill-fitting skin. Charlie’s next move will tear the family apart and threaten everything they hold dear. “An overwhelming and compellingly sympathetic character piece that was a deserved winner of the Audience Award at 2017’s Edinburgh International Film Festival,” writes Andrew Robertson of EyeforFilm.co.uk. [2018, UK, 97 minutes, Not Rated].

There will be a post-screening discussion after the film. This event presents an opportunity for families to discuss their experiences (good & challenging) and share resource information in a safe and private venue.

True Conviction

View Screenings

Film Description:

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is joining the Rehoboth Reads project by hosting a special screening of True Conviction. The theme of this film corresponds to the book Just Mercy, the selected book for the Rehoboth Reads  project.

There’s a new detective agency in Dallas, Texas, started by three exonerated men with decades in prison served between them who look to free innocent people behind bars. True Conviction follows these change-makers as they not only try to rebuild their lives and families, but also attempt to fix the criminal justice system. Director Jamie Meltzer takes viewers into the real-life crime drama that surrounds these freedom fighters on their quest for justice. Brought together through the painful experiences of serving time in jail for crimes they didn’t commit, these brave men embark on a journey of a lifetime to free those wrongly accused and still behind bars. As the drama unfolds, we are given privileged access and insight not only into the personal lives and struggles of the detectives, but also to the difficulties they face in the pursuit of justice. True Conviction is an incredible portrait of those who are able to overcome their past, and use the knowledge and lessons from the journey to help others and effect real change. [2017, USA, Runtime: 84 minutes]

Director Jamie Meltzer’s feature documentary films have been broadcast nationally on PBS and have screened at numerous film festivals worldwide. True Conviction, is a co-production of ITVS and the recipient of a Sundance Institute grant and a MacArthur grant.

Jamie’s family has a second home in Rehoboth where he enjoyed 25 years of glorious summers. Rehoboth is now a part of his own family vacations with his two small children spending their first summers enjoying the beach as well.

 Rehoboth Reads stems from the concept originated by the Washington Center for the Book, people coming together through the reading and discussion of a common book.  Rehoboth Reads mission is to use literature and the arts to promote a sense of community through shared purpose and experience, while encouraging engagement and education?

50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus

View Screenings

Film Description:

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present a special screening of the documentary film 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus on Thursday, May 2 at 7pm. Filmmaker and author Steve Pressman will be present to introduce the film and lead a post-screening Q&A.

In the spring of 1939, a Jewish lawyer and his wife left their comfortable home and two children in Philadelphia and embarked on a bold and improbable plan to rescue fifty children from Nazi-controlled Vienna. Despite the oncoming horrors of the Holocaust, Gil and Eleanor Kraus bravely traveled into the heart of the Nazi empire in an effort to save innocent lives. They wound up in Vienna, where the entire Jewish population had been ordered to leave by the Nazi authorities. The question was where could they go?

Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus were two ordinary people living in a time that demanded extraordinary action. While others only stood by, they courageously stood up. Their incredible story is now a must see film. [2013, USA, Runtime 62 min].

Steve Pressman is a former newspaper and magazine journalist. 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus was his first film. He is also the author of the book 50 Children: One Ordinary American Couple’s Extraordinary Rescue Mission Into The Heart Of Nazi Germany. Paperback copies of 50 Children will be available for purchase at the event and can be signed by the author.

This event will include clips of Steve’s forthcoming film Holy Secrets: The Vatican, the Americans and the Holocaust, a documentary that tells the story of American officials—priests, diplomats and others—who worked behind the scenes in an effort to persuade the pope to stand up against Hitler, the Nazis and the horrors of the Final Solution.

Please note that tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged for other screening dates/times or film title.
