5:00 PM Jewish Film Festival Screening of Lamb The Worldview Project is proud to be a Film Festival Community Partner for the San Diego Jewish Film Festival screenings of the film Lamb!

Upon the death of his mother, a young Jewish boy is sent to live with relatives who see him only as another mouth to feed. Ephraim instantly feels out of place among his Christian relatives whose farming lifestyle and chauvinist attitudes further his struggle to fit in. Ephraim bonds with Chuni, a lamb that begins to accompany him everywhere. But when Ephraim realizes Chuni is going to be slaughtered for an upcoming holiday, he must devise a plan for both of their futures.

Admission/Cost: $15.25 for General Public, $12.25 for Nonmember Seniors and Students
