Broad St.), a comic drama about a young, homesick Israeli woman who takes a break from Berlin and her boyfriend for a short vacation with the folks. She settles into the familiar bickering routine of home until her German boyfriend shows up unexpectedly, just as the family is maneuvering to set her up with a nice Jewish doctor. The festival includes a strong documentary section. "The Lady in Number 6" documents the life of Alice Herz-Sommer, the world's oldest Holocaust survivor, who talks about the importance of music in her life. There will be a screening at 7 p.m. Saturday (Landmark Ritz East, 125 S. 2nd St.) of the French film "24 Days," a blistering, fact-based procedural that follows the investigation into an anti-semitic gang's kidnapping and torture of Ilan Halimi, in France. It was directed by Alexandre Arcady and co-written by the victim's sister, Ruth Halimi. The festival's centerpiece screening is the Holocaust drama "Run Boy Run" , based on the best-seller about an 8-year-old Jewish boy trying to survive in Nazi Occupied Poland. For info visit PJFF.org
