Event

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!

Set within the New York Hasidic community in Borough Park, Brooklyn, Menashe follows a kind but hapless grocery store clerk trying to maintain custody of his son Rieven after his wife, Lea, passes away. Since they live in a tradition-bound culture that requires a mother present in every home, Rieven is supposed to be adopted by the boys strict, married uncle, but Menashes Rabbi decides to grant him one week to spend with Rieven prior to Leas memorial.  Their time together creates an emotional moment of father/son bonding as well as offers Menashe a final chance to prove to his skeptical community that he can be a capable parent.

Shot in secret entirely within the Hasidic community depicted in the film, and one of the only movies to be performed in Yiddish in nearly 70 years, Menashe is a warm, life affirming look at the universal bonds between father and son that also sheds unusual light on a notoriously private community. Based largely on the real life of its Hasidic star Menashe Lustig, the film is a strikingly authentic and deeply moving portrait of family, love, connection, and community.
