Being Jewish in France

Miami Beach Cinematheque. Nov 14th through 16th, 2009. 7:00 p.m.

“Judaica on Film”, in collaboration with National Center for Jewish Film, presents the Miami Theatrical Premiere of the French documentary Being Jewish in France (Comme un Juif en France), directed by Yves Jeuland, narrated by Matthieu Amalric. The screenings will take place at the Miami Beach Cinematheque on November 14th, 15th and 16th at 7:00 p.m.

Yves Jeuland’s sweeping documentary explores the rich and complex history of Jews in France-the first country to grant Jews citizenship-beginning with Revolutionary cries of Vive la France in Yiddish through the explosive Dreyfus Affair; Vichy’s murderous betrayal during World War II, and the absorption of Jews from Arab countries in the 1960’s, to contemporary rising changes of anti-Semitism in France.

“Good things don’t come exclusively in small packages, sometimes they come in great big ones that don’t stay around for very long. Which is the case with the exceptional new three-hour documentary that is playing for three days only at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art….” – Kenneth Turin, LA Times.
