Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1989

With George Bartenieff, Judith Malina, Eszter Balint

Akerman’s investigation of Jewishness—aptly summed up in its subtitle, Food, Family and Philosophy—assembles a cross-section of Jewish New Yorkers (including the Living Theatre co-founder Judith Malina) near the Williamsburg Bridge to recount stories, memories, and jokes. The blend of sometimes tragic personal histories and sardonic Borscht Belt humor yields an incisive portrait of Jewish identity.
