"Saviors in the Night" and "My So-Called Enemy" Top the Boston Jewish Film Festival

Ludi Boeken’s “Saviors in the Night” was named Best Feature Fiction by audience members at this year’s Boston Jewish Film Festival. Boeken’s film recounts the story of farmers in Germany’s Westphalia who hid a family for three years through the end of World War II. The Festival, now in its 22nd edition, was founded in 1989 to showcase contemporary films drawing on Jewish themes.

“My So-Called Enemy” from director Lisa Gossels won the audience award for Best Documentary Feature. The film follows six Palestinian and Israeli women who originally met in the U.S. in 2002 through a women’s leadership program, and tracks their connection through the seven years after the program.
