Film: CIRCUMCISE ME preceded by THE TRIBE
CIRCUMCISE ME -- USA, 48 minutes, Documentary
Directors: David Blumenfeld and Matthew Kalman

"Is it hot in here, or am I the only one dressed for Poland in the 17th century?" Yisrael Campbell looks more like a rabbi than a comedian, but don't be fooled by the big black hat, frock coat and hassidic side-curls. Born Chris Campbell, the son of an ex-nun (which makes Jesus his uncle, by church doctrine) and a Catholic schoolteacher, he converted to Judaism not once, but three times - Reform, Conservative and Orthodox. His spiritual journey began as a drug-drenched teenager in Philadelphia and ended in Jerusalem among the suicide bombs of the Palestinian Intifada. So what's to laugh about? It's the way he tells it. Now a stand-up comedian with a wife, three children and a unique perspective, CIRCUMCISE ME is a hilarious, searching and moving story of one man's quest for spiritual enlightenment against the bewildering backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

THE TRIBE - USA, 2006, 15 minutes, English
Director: Tiffany Shlain

Barbie--like  you've never seen her before! What can the most successful doll on the planet show  us about being Jewish today? Narrated by Peter Coyote, the film mixes old school narration with a new school visual style. THE TRIBE  weaves together archival footage, graphics, animation, Barbie dioramas, and slam poetry to take audiences on an electric ride through the complex history of both the Barbie doll and the Jewish people - from Biblical times to present day. By tracing Barbie's history, the film sheds light on what it means to be an American Jew today.
