Film Festival: Hollywood “Jew Wave”

Several of the films being screened here would count for the extra credit project….

From the Film Society at Lincoln Center: Starting this Thursday, November 3rd, the Film Society will be host to the series “Hollywood: Jew Wave,” honoring J. Hoberman’s critical text regarding the burst of Jewish talent and content that surfaced in 1960’s and 70’s. Running through November 13th, this series will showcase some of the classic films which helped solidify the already emerging topics of Jewish comedy and Jewish self-identification, including screenings of Funny Girl, Annie Hall, The Producers, Lenny, and more!

Considering the content of these exciting films and the impact they had on Hollywood, we thought your students and fellow staff would be interested in hearing about the series.
