The Lion of Judah Rises

Many Jewish people, including myself, avoid Holocaust movies because it is far too painful to watch the dehumanization of those we love. Still, facing what is painful is an important part of life. “Lion of Judah” is not an easy film to watch, but for the next generation it will be a valuable resource for educating children in a world without survivors. More importantly, it is centered on the incredible, Leo Zisman, the Lion of Judah.

2016: Effective, Well Done, a Caveat or Two

Dinesh D’Souza’s film, 2016: Obama’s America, is very good at putting the viewer in the milieu of Jakarta or Nairobi, which continue to feel “different” enough to engage the American viewer’s sense of distance and wonder.

A Window Into The Past; A Lesson For The Future

Earlier this month, members of the Toronto Jewish community were given a rare opportunity to be visually transported back in time. The film, filmed in 1922, is called Hungry Hearts, and is based on the short stories of writer Anzia Yezierska, a Jewish woman born in Poland in the 1880s whose family immigrated to New York.

Like all movies made at that time, it is silent, with dialogue conveyed by cue cards.

The Very Best of Israel on the Silver Screen

Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story is a documentary about the life of a true Israeli hero.

Underreporting The Holocaust At The ‘Paper Of Record’: An Interview With Student Filmmaker Emily...

If you asked someone to outline the profile of a director making a film on The New York Times’s coverage of the Holocaust, “non-Jewish,” “college student,” and “South Carolina native” would probably not be the first descriptors he would use.
