5 Must-See Jewish Films
It is estimated that only 10 percent (!) of today’s filmmakers are women. In large part, this is because many studio executives doubt that audiences will come out to see “women’s stories.” It also doesn’t help that filmmaking is an all-consuming, money-sucking endeavor, which makes it extra hard for women raising children. But it’s essential that we women tell our stories with our varied voices and visions. So we worked with Amy Geller, artistic director of the Boston Jewish Film Festival, to choose five recent Jewish films made by women, and I was lucky enough to interview each one. Two thumbs up for these courageous and fabulous storytellers.
