Common cause between the Black and Jewish communities was found in the turbulent ‘60s Civil Rights era, as Jewish leaders backed Dr. King’s efforts at racial equality and harmony. Yet, the relationship has frayed in recent years, as a once mighty bond of support and respect has seemingly faded, been forgotten or ignored. The crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish cooperation are revisited and revived in this utterly fascinating, urgent call to action. This potent, inspiring story of unity, empathy and partnership validates the ubiquity of the human experience, and how freedom and equality for all can be achieved only when people come together.
Winner: Building Bridges Jury prize @ Atlanta Jewish Film Festival 2020; Audience Favorite Award @ Mayerson JCC; Audience Favorite Award @ Israeli Film Festival 2021.
