UK Jewish Film Festival
Jewish Britain On Film

Sun 17 November 2019

Commissioned by JW3 and chronicling 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.
