So, what is a Jewish film?
There’s no scientific algorithm by which to arrive at this answer, and we did not pretend to invent one. Instead, we—at Sephardic Tree staff, along with our pal and contributing editor Mrs Lipewenko—brought to the table our selected notions of Jewishness (and film-ishness). Some choices were based on the identity of their creators, others for their themes, quite a few for their sheer influence on pop culture, and others because of some elusive sensibility that is impossible to define and yet feels instantly familiar. Our answers cut across genre lines: Some stories of robots or ghosts or spies had as much of a Jewish heart as movies focused on more solemn, obvious subject matters. Also, while many of the selections come from Hollywood, others don’t. From neo-realist Italy to postmodern Israel, we did our best to look at filmmaking across nations and across time.
