Riphagen: The Untouchable (Netherlands, 2016, 131 min, Drama)
Director: Pieter Kuijpers

March 11, 2018 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center 5601 S Braeswood Blvd.
A gripping, intense wartime thriller, "Riphage: The Untouchable" is the chilling epic of a real gangster and war profiteer who betrayed countless Jews in WWII Amsterdam. A foremost figure of the Dutch underworld, the menacing Dries Riphagen was a slick and unscrupulous con artist, most infamously remembered by history as a fervent Jew hunter. As a Nazi collaborator, Riphagen was tasked with tracking down Jews in hiding and confiscating their valuables. Using blackmail to extort small fortunes in jewels, property and currency, he would later betray the location of Jewish families and turn them over to the Germans to meet their fates. Only Jan van Liempd (Kay Greidanus), a young policeman secretly fighting alongside the Resistance, sees through the scheme. His determination to bring the sociopathic war criminal to justice develops into a deadly cat-and-mouse game, as he implacably and zealously pursues a years-long manhunt for the untouchable Riphagen.

Holocaust Museum Houston serves as Community Partner for this film screening.

The Houston Jewish Film Festival takes place from Sunday, March 3 - Sunday, March 18, 2018.
