FILM: “CALL HER APPLEBROOG”
Amherst, 2 p.m.
This deeply personal portrait of acclaimed New York-based artist Ida Applebroog was shot with mischievous reverence by her filmmaker daughter, Beth B (Exposed). Born in the Bronx to Orthodox Jewish émigrés from Poland, Applebroog, now in her 80s, looks back at how she expressed herself through decades of drawings and paintings, as well as her private journals. With her daughter's encouragement, she investigates the stranger that is her former self, a woman who found psychological and sexual liberation through art. As Beth B finds a deeper understanding of her mother as a human being, Applebroog shares a newfound appreciation for her own provocative work.

FILM: “BEATING THE ODDS: THE AL ROSEN STORY”
Amherst, 2 p.m.
After an early childhood in South Florida in which he suffered from severe asthma attacks, Al Rosen emerged as one of the most feared sluggers in baseball in the 1950‘s. A tough, tenacious player, Rosen has generally been considered as one of the three top Jewish baseball players of all time, behind Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax. He retired because of lingering injuries after the 1956 season and eventually served as president of three major league teams -- the New York Yankees, Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants. With the Giants, he was named major league executive of the year in 1987, making him the only person in the game’s history to win that award for management and an MVP prize as a player.   For more information and to purchase tickets: http://support.yiddishbookcenter.org/site/Calendar'id=7884&view=Detail $4-$8   Yiddish Book Center 1021 West Street Amherst, MA 01002   programs@yiddishbookcenter.org 413-256-4900 https://www.yiddishbookcenter.org/
