Jewish Britain on Film chronicles extraordinary -and some wonderfully ordinary- scenes of 20th Century Jewish life, unearthed by film archives across the nation.
Narrated by Isy Suttie (Peep Show, Pearl & Dave), the footage includes rare scenes of an Edwardian Petticoat Lane; a wedding in London’s East End in 1925; the defeat of the British Union of Fascists at Cable Street; Britain’s earliest surfing film, an interview with actor Maureen Lipman at the beginning of her career and many more surprising and tender moments in history captured on screen.
Francesca Ter-Berg (Fran & Flora, Sam Lee) provides a beautiful original soundtrack.
Produced by JW3, this archive film tour has been made possible with support from the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery and the Shoresh Charitable Trust.
