Join the Harvard Art Museums and Harvard College Film Festival for an advanced screening of Menashe, a film produced by award-winning studio A24. Menashe, directed by Joshua Weinsten and starring Alex Lipschultz and Musa Syeed, earned rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival for its immersive world-building and first-person perspective into a rarely-explored community of ultra-orthodox Judaism.
About Menashe: Within Brooklyn's ultra-orthodox Jewish community, a widower battles for custody of his son. A tender drama performed entirely in Yiddish, the film intimately explores the nature of faith and the price of parenthood.
The event will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level.
Co-sponsored by Harvard Hillel and the Committee on the Study of Religion with support of the Rabbi Joseph S. Shubow Memorial Fund.
Support for this program is provided by the Richard L. Menschel Endowment Fund.
