Jewish Britain on Film
Directed by Jon Spira | 2019 | UK | 1h25 | Certificate TBC (advised 12A)
Jewish Britain on Film chronicles extraordinary -and some wonderfully ordinary- scenes of 20th Century Jewish life, unearthed by film archives across the nation. Narrated by Isy Suttie, the footage includes rare scenes of an Edwardian Petticoat Lane; a wedding in London’s East End in 1925; the defeat of the British Union of Fascists at Cable Street; Britain’s earliest surfing film, an interview with actor Maureen Lipman at the beginning of her career and many more surprising and tender moments in history captured on screen. Francesca Ter-Berg (Fran & Flora) provides a beautiful soundtrack.
