Many Jewish-American filmmakers crafted movies with powerful social justice issues woven into them. These artists possessed a profound awareness of discrimination and exploitation.

Back by popular demand, professor Marc Lapadula returns to TJFF to examine some of the memorable work by filmmakers such as Michael Curtiz, Sidney Lumet, William Wyler and even the late Carl Reiner.

“Film Professor Marc Lapadula from Yale is one of the very best Professors we've ever been lucky enough to work with. He leaves virtually all of our audience members on their feet as part of a standing ovation. Yes, he's that good!” (Steven Schragis, Founder / Director, One Day University)
