CFC proudly congratulates alumna Naomi Jaye on being awarded the Grand Prix at the 2014 Warsaw Jewish Film Festival for her film The Pin, produced by alumnus Daniel Bekerman and edited by Jorge Weisz.

The Pin is a story about an embittered elderly Shomer, a religious watchman responsible for guarding the souls of the dead before their burial, comes face-to-face with his long lost first love Leah when her dead body is wheeled into the morgue one fateful night.

Time melts as he relives their days and nights spent hiding in a barn in Lithuania, fighting for survival as World War II rages around them. Brought together in these extreme circumstances, what starts as mistrust develops into love, marriage and ultimately murder. In the end, the Shomer is able to find peace after a lifetime of regret by fulfilling a promise he made to the young Leah on their last night together.
