Thank heavens the Jewish Underground referred to in the program “The Best of the Jewish Underground” now means kooky filmmakers such as Jeff Krulik. In this case, it is filmmakers working under the radar of mainstream Hollywood—which, ironically enough, according to Neal Gabler, the Jews invented—who will showcase a late-night exhibition of their short work. The peripatetic Krulik has been announced as a special guest, along with one of his more voluble subjects, Neil Keller, star of Krulik’s curiously compelling minimasterpiece, Obsessed With Jews. (Be sure to ask Keller about his “De Niro is a Jew” theory.) Also screening are Moses vs. Godzilla, quite possibly a takeoff on the 1969 animated short Bambi Meets Godzilla—though I give Moses better odds—and The Blair Princess Project, one of the 17,000 instant Blair Witch parodies that are all as funny as their titles. The films screen at 11 p.m. at the District of Columbia Jewish Community Center’s Goldman Theater, 16th and Q Streets NW. $8.50. (800) 494-8497. (Dave Nuttycombe)
