MENASHE (U) – 2017 USA 82 min – subtitled – Holocaust Memorial Day screening

Saturday 27 January 2018 at 2:30 pm

Director: Joshua Z Weinstein
Stars: Menashe Lustig, Yoel Falkowitz, Ruben Niborski

Picture from the film.In Brooklyn’s Borough Park, the tight-knit orthodox Jewish community live amongst but quite separately from the wider world. Widower Menashe – finely played by newcomer Lustig – has little desire to remarry and wants to raise his ten-year-old son alone, who Hasidic strictures insist should be raised by a woman. Amiable but accident-prone, Menashe is granted an opportunity to prove his worth as a parent…

Picture from the film.

This naturalistic portrayal of an often unnoticed community is fascinating and respectful yet amusing. Recalling that Yiddish-language cinema was far more commonplace before WWII, Menashe is screened in association with Holocaust Memorial Day.
