Event

MJFF MENASHE 3-15 6:00 PM NICKELODEON
MENASHE Thurs 3-16 6:00 PM NICKELODEON

Drama / Dir:Joshua Z Weinstein / Starring:Menashe Lustig, Yoel Falkowitz, Ruben Niborsk  / USA/ 2017 / Yiddish w/ Eng ST / 82 min

In the first 21st century Yiddish language film, Menashe, a good-hearted but somewhat hapless grocery store clerk, struggles against tradition to keep custody of his only son after his wife passes away.  A rare inside illumination of New Yorks notoriously secretive ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, this film provides a compelling portrait of a father trying to do the best for his beloved son.  As filmgoers, we learn about a different culture while appreciating the universality of Menashes story, which is based on the life of its star, Menashe Lustig, a liberal Hasid.  The film will be followed by a discussion led by Rabbi Sruli Dresdner.    

"Incredibly special" Roger Ebert
