The First Basket & The Tribe (short)
The Tribe
Director: Tiffany Schlain
Country: USA, 2006, Documentary Short
Duration: 18 Min
Language: English
What can the most successful doll on the planet show us about being Jewish today? Narrated by Peter Coyote, The Tribe combines old school narration with a new school visual style. The film skillfully 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 Barbies history, the film sheds light on what it means to be an American Jew in the 21st Century.

The First Basket
Director: David Vyorst
Country: USA, 2007, Documentary
Duration: 86 Min
Language: English
The First Basket explores the impact that basketball had on Jewish immigrants, as well as the profound influence that unsung Jewish basketball pioneers had on the evolution of basketball, as it grew from a game played with ash-cans on tenement steps to the second most popular sport in the world. The First Basket is the only documentary to comprehensively examine both the role that Jewish players had in the evolution of the game and the impact that basketball played in the assimilation of American Jews.
