Another Piece From Jewish Week

The Museum of Jewish Heritage way downtown at the southern tip of Manhattan is doing a brief but interesting series on Welsh-Jewish films, a subject unusual enough to be worth two stories. The first is an interview with Nathan Abrams, whose book, The New Jew in Cinema, is well worth a look. The second is an interview with Gideon Koppel, whose mesmerizing film sleep furiously is being shown in the series,which takes place this weekend. For more information on the series itself, go to the Museum's website. They have another film-related exhibition coming up that should be of interest to readers of this blog, Filming the Camps: John Ford, Samuel Fuller, George Stevens: From Hollywood to Nuremberg, which will open March 22.
