JDAIM ReelAbilities Pre-Festival Film: My Feral Heart
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 the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
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.
