"The 11th Annual Gainesville Latino Film Festival and the Center for Jewish Studies are pleased to bring you "Mr. Kaplan" directed by Álvaro Brechner. The film will be shown on Thursday, September 17, 7pm at the The Hippodrome State Theatre.
Having fled Poland for South America during WWII, curmudgeonly Jacob Kaplan (award-winning Chilean actor Héctor Noguera) is passing his sunset years in Montevideo with his wife of 50 years, Rebecca (Nidia Telles). With his family lost in the war, he begins to take stock of his own unfulfilled life, and finds himself fed up with the local Jewish communitys disinterest in their heritage. Intent on creating a legacy, Kaplan fancies himself a Nazi hunter, targeting the reclusive German owner of a seafront restaurant (Rolf Becker), whom, based on the flimsiest of evidence, he suspects of being a war criminal. Joining the quixotic quest for justice is Kaplans hapless chauffeur Contreras (Nestor Guzzini), a disgraced ex-cop who also has something to prove. A bumbling investigation ensues, with hilarious and surprising results that will leave audiences contemplating nothing less than the meaning of life.

Dr. Arthur S. Edison, Professor, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, College of Medicine.Â
Dr. Edison completed his Ph.D. in biophysics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he developed and applied NMR methods for protein structural studies under the supervision of John Markley and Frank Weinhold. In 1993, he joined the laboratory of Antony O. W. Stretton at the University of Wisconsin as a Jane Coffin Childs postdoctoral fellow, where he investigated the role of neuropeptides in the nervous system of the parasitic nematode Ascaris suum. He joined the faculty at the University of Florida in 1996. He is the recipient of the 1997 American Heart Association Robert J. Boucek Award and of a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 1999. The Edison laboratory is interested in chemical signaling and communication. Most research involves NMR spectroscopy, natural products chemistry, Caenorhabditis elegans, and molecular biology. They have developed very high-sensitivity NMR methods to analyze small amounts of material and are developing approaches to analyze complex biological mixtures of small molecules like metabolites and pheromones. They are expanding work in nematodes with a newly funded NIH grant to discover additional pheromones in species related to C. elegans. The major goal of the C. elegans project is to isolate and identify small molecules that the nematodes use for communication.Â
