From Levinsky to Borat: A Jewish Perspective


How do films perpetuate or challenge the age-old hatred that is antisemitism?

This interactive session explores this increasingly urgent question through a fascinating collection of rare and famous film clips dating back to the early 1900s and up to the current day. A must-see session for every film lover with an interest in Jewish representation on screen.

Led by UK Jewish Film’s Education Manager Rachel Burns, the session is based on the highly regarded film-based workshops designed to combat antisemitism that UK Jewish Film is currently bringing to schools in Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Islington.
