NEWPORT – The Newport Jewish community’s eighth annual Aquidneck Island Jewish Film Series, which began in late January, includes three movies in all, one of which was shown in January. These films are free and open to the community.

“Live and Become,” a 2005 Israeli film, will be shown Feb. 26, at 1:15 p.m. at the Newport Public Library, 300 Spring St., Newport, and is hosted by Touro Synagogue. Based on actual events, it is the story of a young Ethiopian swept up into Operation Moses, a joint effort between American and Israeli troops aimed at relocating Jewish refugees from Africa to Israel.

“The Trotsky,” a 2009 quirky Canadian independent comedy, tells the story of teenager Leon Bronstein. Believing that he is the re-born incarnation of Leon Trotsky, he stages a strike at his father’s clothing factory and a student walkout at his new school. The film – not appropriate for children – will be shown March 17, at 7:30 p.m. at Temple Shalom, 223 Valley Road, Middletown.

Jeffrey Martin, theater professor at Roger Williams University, moderates discussions after each film. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call Bailey at 846-3318.
