Menemsha Hanukkah Film Festival

November 30, 2021

The Tattooed Torah
Marc Bennett/USA/English/21 minutes
Narrated by Ed Asner

Over the last three decades, the beloved children’s book by Marvell Ginsburg has been a powerful resource for Holocaust education. Narrated by Ed Asner, the film brings to life the true story of the rescue and restoration of a small Torah from Brno, Czechoslovakia, and teaches the Holocaust not only as a period of destruction but also as an opportunity for redemption.

Mish Mish
Tal Michael/Israel, France/English, Hebrew, French/74 minutes

In a basement near Paris, go inside a recently discovered treasure-trove of Egyptian animated films from the Frenkel brothers: three exceptional young filmmakers and creators of Mish-Mish Effendi, the Mickey Mouse of the entire region, revealing a forgotten era gone forever, an Arab-Jewish golden age erased from the pages of history.
