COMMIE CAMP, co-presented by SFJFF Kids
"Commie Camp" is a documentary about the legendary Camp Kinderland, the summer camp, which still exists, and was founded in the 1920's by secular Jewish workers who wanted their children to escape hot New York City summers for a progressive Yiddish-speaking environment. Eight decades later, of the many progressive camps which enriched America's cultural and political landscapes, Kinderland stands alone. Capturing one Kinderland summer and weaving in history, the film focuses on the 'Peace Olympics,' Kinderland's alternative to other camps' competitive 'color wars.' Each summer Kinderland organizes its program around a theme, and this season it's 'From Discussion to Action: Making the World a Better Place.'
Please come to this special screening co-presented by The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival Kids!
