Salute to the 23rd Anniversary of the San Diego Jewish Film Festival


The Cinema Society of San Diego is proud to salute the San Diego Jewish Film Festival, which celebrates its 23rd Anniversary this year. For the celebration, we are pleased to be presenting one of the many delightful films shown over their 11-day celebration.

Starring Russian violinist—and Grammy nominee—Philippe Quint, DOWNTOWN EXPRESS tells the tale of Sasha, a Juilliard-trained violinist (as is Quint himself) at a crossroads. One path is traditional in every way, playing classical music recitals, heading toward a career in the great concert halls of the world and living a life overseen by his loving yet domineering father. The other is the path less traveled, which takes him into New York City's bohemian underground where he is playing music, and falling in love with a singer/songwriter played by the acclaimed and singular musician, Nellie McKay. An engaging film with an equally eclectic and dynamic soundtrack.

Running Time: 90 Minutes
