An Israeli- and Jewish-themed film festival is under way this week in Rome. Called the Roma Kolno'a Festival, it focuses on four themes: contemporary Israeli film, the spy story in Israel- and Jewish-themed films, the influence of the Holocaust on the films of survivor and filmmaker Roman Polanski, and a homage to Israeli filmmaker Uri Zohar. The six-day event opened Saturday night with the 2004 Israeli film Metallic Blues, introduced by director Danny Verete.
