Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana
Directed by Gabrielle Zilkha · Canada · 2016 · 84 min · English
A tiny community in rural Ghana recently discovered that the religion they have been practicing for centuries is Judaism. Filmmaker Gabrielle Zilkha explores their story from isolation to global connection and the challenges and rewards they face along the way.
Made over the course of five years, Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana is a work of love. The affection between the filmmaker and the Sefwi shines as an unspoken part of the story. This is a fascinating study of Judaism and blonging.
