UKJFF: City of Joel + Panel Discussion
UK Jewish Film Festival - UK Premiere
Directed by Jesse Sweet | 2018 | USA | English, Yiddish with English subtitles | 83mins
Kiryas Joel is a modern shtetl in the small town of Monroe, NJ. For decades its Hassidic residents have lived harmoniously with their mostly non-religious, non-Jewish neighbours. But a recent request to annex a plot of land that would double the size of the ultra-orthodox neighbourhood prompts the rest of the town’s population to embark on a campaign – which many in the Jewish community accuse of being antisemitic – against them. A thought-provoking tale about interfaith relations in America today.
