"SHALOM IRELAND" - Shalom Ireland is a one hour glimpse into Ireland's remarkable, yet little known Jewish community. The documentary chronicles the history of Irish Jewry while celebrating the unique culture created by blending Irish and Jewish traditions. From gun running for the Irish Republican Army during Ireland's War of Independence to smuggling fellow Jews escaping from the Holocaust into Palestine, Shalom Ireland shows us the rich contribution of Irish Jews in the creation and development of both Ireland and Israel.
"B-BOY" - Thirteen-year-old Eli navigates two diverse cultures while coming of age as a bar mitzvah and a competitive break dancer in this moving, short documentary about the power of passion, dedication and community.
