13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>Among Farmers</i> Montpelier Vermont

German cinema's growing number of films willing to address topics relating to World War II has a fine addition in Ludi Boeken's new film, which tells of farmers in Westphalia who without hesitation sheltered Jewish friends (their former World War I comrades) from the Nazis. The farmers are used to weathering even dangerous situations somehow, guided only by their instinct and century-old code of ethics. Variety: "Working from a memoir by Marga Spiegel, director Boeken spurns melodrama in favor of understatement and a clear depiction of events while sustaining an extraordinary degree of tension throughout." Sponsored by Casey Family Services. Community Partners: Beth Jacob Synagogue, Kellogg-Hubbard Library. 95 minutes, in German with subtitles.
