February is Jewish Disabilities Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). Join ReelAbilities Film Festival — Northern Virginia for a pre-festival screening of «My Feral Heart,» presented in partnership with Congregation Olam Tikvah and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington. Featuring guest speaker, Lucy Sturman, co-author of Enabled — The Memoir of Ceci and Lucy Sturman, a moving memoir that offers both beauty and truth to the special needs community.

Synopsis:
A sudden bereavement throws Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down syndrome, into a group home—a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise caretaker and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships bloom, Luke’s frustration and disappointment with his new home soon turns to wonder when he discovers a way out and begins to explore the surrounding countryside. But as long-buried secrets are revealed, Luke treads dangerously close to disaster. «My Feral Heart» is a beautifully realized narrative, bolstered by strong performances, distinctive cinematography, and a deeply evocative score.

Open Captions available.

Admission is $5 at the door. No advance tickets.

This event is hosted by Congregation Olam Tikvah. We are proud to be part of this community-wide effort. Learn more about JDAIM online at https://jconnect.org/jdam.
