Axelrod Performing Arts Center


The Axelrod PAC’s popular Israel Jewish Film Festival, taking place in the Vogel Auditorium as well as the Jewish Heritage Museum in Freehold and the Monroe Senior Center, continues to attract thousands of viewers from around the stage. This year’s festival will include no fewer than seven new groundbreaking films from Israel, the United States and Europe. Weekday films are free to students.

In How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can't Change, Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?

Josh Fox is best known as the Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning writer/director of GASLAND Parts I and II. He is internationally recognized as a spokesperson and leader on the issue of fracking and extreme energy development. His new film How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016 and won the Environmental Advocacy Award at the Washington DC Environmental Film Festival.
