Description

The Parisian neighbourhood of Le Marais is universally famous for being the gay and Jewish village of Paris. Before becoming the headquarters of the gay community, this quarter, and especially the Rue des Rosiers, was always Europe’s most Jewish street. Despite rising anti-Semitism in France, it remains a peaceful and protected bubble where the gay and Orthodox communities co-exist. Interviewing members of the neighbourhood’s Jewish community, filmmaker Sophie Bramly captures the life of the street—its restaurants, shops, synagogues—which remains a safe haven for two oppressed communities.
