Lighthouse International Film Festival Runs June 3rd-6th, 2021 at the Jersey Shore: Virtual, Venues and Parties, SXSW's Swan Song is Opening Film

This shining gem of a film festival is at the Jersey Shore. Located on Long Beach Island, a narrow strip of pristine beaches on one side and bayshores on the other, it's a festival gaining recognition with its selection of award-winning and new independent films. A plus for this festival - this year it is outdoors as well as inside. Last year, the Lighthouse Festival was one of the few festivals that were actually held, and using a drive-in format, some of the showings were even sold out. What's better than watching a movie outside? That would be watching a movie outside with the smell of the beach in the air.

You have led a life of tragedy and resilience. First, tell me why it was necessary to write this book and something about the process?

Ziva Bakman Flamhaft:  The first part of your question provides the answer to the reason I needed to write my book: My life of tragedy and resilience. I was an unexperienced, sheltered young woman seemingly unprepared to handle the unimaginable loses I had suffered.
