Description

A wonderful new collection of narrative and documentary short films offering an array of diverse relationships, time periods and places that help define the Canadian Jewish experience: a dark comedy about mother-daughter relationships set against the backdrop of small-town Quebec; a woman possessed by the demon Lilith on an isolated Jewish agricultural settlement in 1904 Manitoba; a moral dilemma facing a Yiddish-speaking Orthodox couple living on dairy farm in rural Quebec; a filmmaker bringing to life the story of her Russian Jewish grandfather’s first arrival in Canada at the turn of the last century; and a lively portrait of a Polish-born painter who at 87 remains a prolific and celebrated artist and teacher inspiring her students.
