The 27th Washington Jewish Film Festival presents Supergirl

Create: 04/13/2017 - 06:23
When a nine-year-old girl breaks a powerlifting world record, she turns into an international phenomenon, and “Supergirl” is born. Naomi Kutin seems like a typical Orthodox Jewish pre-teen until her extraordinary talent transforms the lives of her family and thrusts her into news headlines. Supergirl follows Naomi’s unique coming-of-age story as she fights to hold on to her title while navigating the perils of adolescence—from strict religious obligations to cyber-bullying and health concerns that could jeopardize her future in powerlifting. Saturday, May 20 screening followed by a Q&A with film co-producer Justin Levy. check out a preview here screening times Saturday, May 20, 4:15 pm | E Street Cinema Thursday, May 25, 6:15 pm | Bethesda Row Cinema
