Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry is a proud sponsor of the Seattle Jewish Film Festival again this year.

The Jewish Cardinal tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, son of Polish-Jewish immigrants to France, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris in 1981 by Pope John Paul II, and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him friends and enemies from both groups. A fascinating drama full of intelligence and gentle humor. <Source: Film Society, Lincoln Center>
