The Triad Jewish Film Festival proudly presents MENASHE.
"Menashe" brings the story of a widower named Menashe and his 10 yr. old son Rieven. As the movie opens, it is clear we are in the Hasidic Jewish community in New York, as we see Menashe get to work in a grocery-type store. After work, he joins others in a testy discussion as to what the "real" rules of the Hasidic Jewish community are. It's not long, though, before we learn that Menashe has a son, but, per the Hasidic Jewish rules, he cannot live with Menashe and instead is being raised by the boy's uncle (the brother of Menashe's deceased wife) and his family. Menashe is desperate to see his boy more often, and to get him to return home... At this point we are 10 min. into the movie, but to tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
About the Triad Jewish Film Festival
The annual Triad Jewish Film Festival (TJFF) presents the best and brightest cinematic moments from Israeli and Jewish cinema, and affords movie-goers the opportunity to see Jewish films that are not readily available in theaters. Our films allow patrons the opportunity to unpack the various scintillating yet often challenging themes that surface as part of the TJFF viewing experience. The high quality of the films and the Jewish themes build community — and lift the human experience in a way no other medium does. Join us for our film festival, both virtual and in person from January 28, 2024, through February 11, 2024. TICKETS AVAILABLE AT MYTJFF.COM
