Win tickets to the UK Jewish Film Festival’s screening of The Great Dictator!

Win tickets to the UK Jewish Film Festival’s screening of The Great Dictator!

To celebrate the 17th Jewish Film Festival, which launched on October 30, we are giving you the chance to get your hands on a pair of tickets to Charlie Chaplin’s classic film THE GREAT DICTATOR taking place on 14th November in London.

Charlie Chaplin’s first talkie, made over a decade after the introduction of sound, stands as a brave and controversial piece of filmmaking. Entering production in 1937, at a time when many Americans saw Hitler as an ally rather than an enemy, the film was first released in 1940, prior to the United States’ entry into the Second World War.

Satirising Adolf Hitler, Chaplin plays a dual role: firstly as Adenoid Hynkel, the great dictator of the title and despotic ruler of Tomainia; and secondly – in a stroke of genius – as an amnesiac Jewish barber, who returns from the trenches of the First World War to discover that his shop is now part of a ghetto presided over by thuggish stormtroopers.

The 17th Jewish Film Festival will feature screenings of over 80 films and other special events across five cities – London, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.

To be in with a chance of winning, just answer the question below by leaving a comment to this post.
