Product Description:

Jamie Kastner's feature documentary is a personal odyssey to uncover what it means to be Jewish in the early 21st century, even if he's not ready to reveal his own mysterious heritage. He travels from the safe confines of Hassidic-entrenched Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to the Arabic-influenced Parisian suburbs--where hating Jews is as common as croissants--all to uncover the contemporary image of Judaism in this provocative film-festival favorite.

Product Description:

Provocative, mischievous and difficult to dismiss, filmmaker Jamie Kastner's first-person docu-essay dissects identity politics by exploring the question, “What does it mean to be perceived as Jewish'” For answers, Kastner visits a Parisian suburb noted for its tolerance, where a street interview reveals a darker side of modern Europe; poses some pointed questions to conservative pundit Pat Buchanan; and makes a trip to Auschwitz to observe how a site of extreme evil has been transformed into a tacky tourist attraction. Through it all, Kastner's personal journey becomes a universal exploration – funny and frightening, quirky and surprising – of identities, images, and the mystery of tribal definition; of differentness, self-conception and misconception, of bigotry and oversensitivity.
