1997, 85 minutes, Co-Produced with Bari Scott
An 85 minute feature length documentary film – made collaboratively by Jewish and Black filmmakers – examining key contemporary conflicts between the Black and Jewish communities. An invaluable tool for increasing mutual understanding and building coalitions for social justice, not just between Blacks and Jews, but among all groups.
“Provocative and absorbing…’Blacks and Jews’ will undermine stereotypes, inspire discussion and help repair a wrongly damaged relationship.” Roger Ebert
“This 85 minute film will ignite you!” Mandy Patinkin
