Boston Premiere Screening - Young Jewish and Left
screening of new documentary & discussion w/ co-director Irit Reinheimer to follow
Sunday, February 11 @ 5:00PM
Workmen's Circle Screening of the new documentary
Young, Jewish, and Left
With special appearance by Co-Director Irit Reinheimer
A celebration of diversity, Young Jewish and Left weaves queer culture, Jewish Arab history, secular Yiddishkiet, anti-racist analysis, and religious/spiritual traditions into a multi-layered tapestry of Leftist politics. Personal experiences from many of today's leading Jewish activists reframe the possibilities of Jewish identity. It presents a fresh and constructive take on race, spirituality, Zionism, queerness, resistance, justice, and liberation. As these community organizers, playwrights, artists, and rabbis speak of building progressive organizations, new rituals, and more inclusive communities, it is clear that their inspiration is drawn from a proud Jewish past. Inspired by the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the Workmen's Circle, and by their own communist & socialist grandparents, these Jewish radicals are creating a more just future by learning from and identifying with a collective, rich Jewish heritage of reform and rebellion. At a time when religious fundamentalists take power in the US and around the world, this documentary is an inspiration.
Young, Jewish, and Left was shot throughout the US and focuses on Jews who came of age after the New Left movements of the 60's and 70's. Activists from the previous generation provide historical context. The film will be followed by a group discussion.
