At Home in Utopia
Director: Michal Goldman - 57 min.
In the mid-1920s, thousands of immigrant Jewish garment workers escaped the slums and ghettos by pooling their resources and building four cooperatively owned and run apartment complexes in the Bronx. This was the most grassroots and memberdriven of the Jewish labor housing cooperatives where many of the members were communists. The film depicts the struggle for equity and justice across two generations from the 1920s to the 1950s. It pays close attention to the passions that bound them together and those that tore them apart. Introduction by Phyllis Markus, former Editor of Joint Council 13 Teamsters Newspaper.
In the Shadows of the Acroplois
Director: Maxine Davis - 30 min.
This compelling documentary narrated by Jaime-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) reveals an unknown two thousand-year-old culture. The Greek Jews represent a branch of Judaism which few have ever heard of: The Romaniotes. Through original testimony by the Ackos family, this memoir tell the compelling details of how this culture was almost wiped off the map of civilization during World War II- a story you have never heard before. Post film discussion with Filmmaker, Laura Zell.
