Stowe Jewish Film Festival: 'Yerusalem'

When: Wed., July 13, 7 p.m. 2022

The Stowe Jewish Film Festival’s triumphant return to in-person programming kicks off this week with Yerusalem, a documentary about the long-isolated Ethiopian Jewish community of Beta Israel. This year’s festival theme, “The Jewish Experience,” celebrates the racial, cultural and national diversity of Jewish communities around the world. Future screenings include UnRaveling: My Grandfather, Pancho Villa and Me, the story of a 20th-century mystery surrounding a Texas Jewish family and their Mexican neighbors; The Missing Tale, which sheds light on the few remaining members of an ancient Indian Jewish community; and Mamboniks Ahora!, which recounts how the mambo spread like wildfire among Jewish social dancers in the 1950s.

Price: $10-15.
