This new documentary follows the lives and struggles of the emerging Jewish community in Nigeria.
With the introduction of the Internet in Nigerian society, young Igbo men began to research their history and noticed a pattern of similarities between Igbo and Jewish traditions. This discovery gave rise to Igbo shaking off years of Colonial Christianity and fueling a movement toward Jewish identity and practice, which has been fraught with turns into Messianic worship, family exile, prejudice from Muslim and Christian neighbors, and scorn from Jews in the Western world, yet it has also been a communal journey. Panel discussion to follow screening.
Tickets: $21 / $18 for those 35 and under.
