Cinema Art Bethesda will screen the coming-of-age film “Lore” at 10 a.m. Sunday at Bethesda Row Cinema, 7235 Woodmont Ave., Bethesda. Australia’s official entry for the 2013 Academy Awards, “Lore” follows the film’s titular heroine as she leads her siblings across a war-torn Germany following the imprisonment of her Nazi parents. Encountering a mysterious refugee, themes of trust and belief emerge as two people — a concentration camp survivor and the children of Nazi Party members — must look past hate in order to move toward survival. Professor of film history Stan Levin will moderate a post-film discussion. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Tickets are $15, with breakfast included. For more information, visit http://cinemaartbethesda.org.
