Third Film Festivals: Women Take the Reel at Northeastern

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Snell Library, 421

Celebrating Women's History Month, a film screening of "Treyf" and panel discussion featuring Lori Lefkovitz, Ruderman Professor and Director of Jewish Studies, and Suzanna Walters, Professor of Sociology and Director of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.

 

Open to the general public.

 

TREYF —“unkosher” in Yiddish— is an unorthodox documentary by and about two Jewish lesbians who met and fell in love at a Passover “seder”. With personal narration, real and imagined educational films, and haunting imagery, filmmakers Alisa Lebow and Cynthia Madansky examine the Jewish identity of their upbringings and its impact on their lives.
