Events | Yearning to Belong: The North American Jewish Story Through Cinema

Thursday, March 22, 2012. 7:30 pm

An examination of the Jew as creator, producer and subject of cinema provides a most unusual perspective on the North American Jew- the way Jews see themselves and how others perceive Jews.  The predominance of Jews in the film industry provides other insights into contemporary Jewry. Through film clips and discussion, we will learn how filmmakers created and packaged their own unique concept of the Jew, as filtered through their own consciousness.
