2:00 PM HAG
Nickelodeon Cinemas | 1 Temple St., Portland
Director: Yisrael Lifshutz
Country: U.S. | 2007 | Mocumentary
Duration: 93 min.
HAG is a serio-comic hybrid of fact and fiction chronicling the life of Yisrael "Izzi" Lifschutz. He has acted in and/or consulted on such Hollywood films as The Chosen, Stranger Among Us and the independent classic Pi (which he also co-produced). This outrageously funny mockumentary is a survey of Jewish visibility in cinema and fictionalized history with archival "behind the scenes" footage, interviews, and staged scenes. It also goes beyond its humor to speak to contemporary Jewish experience. Lifshutz, while "HAGing" the spotlight boasts, "I'm so animated they call me the kosher ham!"
