Official Selection DOC NYC 2021. Two secular Jewish summer camps in Upstate New York have cultivated social activists for almost a century and are still in existence. Kinderland was communist; Kinder Ring (The Workmen’s Circle) socialist. Despite their legendary feud, today’s campers—a largely secular multi-ethnic group—prioritize shared values over philosophical differences and attempt to join forces in the ongoing fight for equality and justice. This uplifting, and funny, documentary explores the legacy of the Jewish left, as well as the necessity of overcoming divisiveness, in today’s troubled times.
