Menashe
Menashe
West Coast Premiere!
Drama/USA/Israel/2017/81 minutes
Co-written and Directed by Joshua Weinstein
Co-written and Produced by Alex Lipschultz
Starring Menashe Lustig
Yiddish with English subtitles

Critics' Pick! Debuted at the famed Sundance and Berlinale Film Festivals!

Deep in the heart of New York's ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, Menashe, a kind, hapless grocery store clerk, struggles to make ends meet and responsibly parent his young son, Rieven, following his wife Leah's death. Tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven's strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken. Meanwhile, though Menashe seems to bungle every challenge in his path, his rabbi grants him one special week with Rieven before Leah's memorial. It's his chance to prove himself a suitable man of faith and fatherhood, and restore respect among his doubters.

Performed entirely in Yiddish, Menashe uses intimate, handheld camerawork to drop us inside and humanize a hermetically sealed world of Heredi, working-class men debating in crowded shuls or seeking counsel in the rabbi's library. And yet Menashe is in many ways an outsider in this tight-knit circle, as he bucks convention and ruffles feathers to stay true to himself.

Q&A with Producer Alex Lipschultz and Rob Adler Peckerar, Director of Yiddishkayt
