Jewish Identity Film - With Rick Winston
Place:Kellogg-Hubbard Library
Time:6:30 PM
Contact Name:Liz Medina

For many decades, Hollywood's attitude toward Jewish issues was one of reticence, if not neglect. This changed in the late 1960s with the end of the studio system and the emergence of several young writer-directors who displayed confident and complex viewpoints on Jewish identity. I'll discuss the work of four of the best-known of these filmmakers, using clips from several films. Among the subjects covered will be: the Holocaust (Lumet’s The Pawnbroker, Mazursky’s Enemies, a Love Story, Brooks’ The Producers); family life (Mazursky’s Next Stop Greenwich Village, Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors); autobiography (Next Stop Greenwich Village, Allen’s Radio Days); politics and culture (Lumet’s Daniel , Allen’s Annie Hall). co-sponsored by the Beth Jacob Synagogue
