Jewish Stories

Yes, there are extraordinary and essential films of remembrance and analysis here, on the Shoah and on Middle East politics (and more of our Israel/Palestine films are gathered here) — but also much much more — JEWISH STORIES encompasses visions of diverse cultures and diasporic communities that define much of our intellectual and cultural life today — from Robert Vas’ classic study of London’s East End THE VANISHING STREET, to Ferenc Toroc’s classic fiction feature film 1945, Chantal Akerman’s dry and compelling Tel Aviv diary DOWN THERE, through to Marcel Ophuls’ Oscar-winning film on Klaus Barbie, HOTEL TERMINUS. In other words, this is a sea of essential stories.
