The ReelAbilities Film Festival New Jersey will make a virtual visit to Bridgewater on Monday, Nov. 30.
The Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center will host a pair of online screenings as part of the annual traveling festival, which is dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expressions of people with different disabilities.
The noon showing will present two short films: “The Matchmaker,” directed by Leonora Pitts, follows a man who recently put his mother in a retirement home and becomes an eHarmony anti-Alzheimer’s matchmaker.’ “Sock Guys,” directed by Katie Turinkski, looks at a father and his down syndrome who run a successful business.
The 7 p.m. screening will be “Code of the Freaks,” a full-length documentary for adults only directed by Salome Chasnoff that critiques Hollywood’s representation of disabled characters.
Tickets for each screening are $5. Visit ssbjc.org/reelabilities or call 908-443-9018. A Zoom
