Film Screening & Discussion. “Find a Jew”
Please join the Harriman Institute for a film screening of Find a Jew. A discussion of the film with the director, Anna Narinskaya, will follow. Moderated by Mark Lipovetsky.
The phenomenon of the Soviet Jew is not quite perceptible. Jews were called “the main mystery of the USSR”. How could they remain Jews without generally keeping to their religion, language, and traditions, and often willing to adopt new traditions? Anna Narinskaya, a prominent culture expert and journalist, who grew up in a “non-Jewish Jewish family”, talks to the witnesses of the epoch, her friends and relatives, anthropologists and researchers of popular culture. And as a result of her search she finds herself in a very, very strange place.
