The Levys of Monticello

View Screenings

When Thomas Jefferson died in 1826, he left behind a mountain of personal debt, which forced his heirs to sell his beloved Monticello home and all of its possessions. The Levys of Monticello is a compelling documentary that tells the astonishing, and little-known story of the Levy family, which owned and carefully preserved Monticello for nearly a century – far longer than Jefferson or his descendants. The remarkable story of the Levy family also intersects with the rise of antisemitism that runs throughout the course of American history. This film is the Jury Prize Winner at the 2022 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. [2021, USA, 72 min, Rated: NR].

This screening is hosted by Sara & Jeffrey Rosen

Director Steve Pressman (author and director of 50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus and director of Holy Silence) will facilitate a post-screening audience discussion.

Latter Day Jew

View Screenings

Latter Day Jew is an award-wining documentary feature film following H. Alan Scott, a gay, former Mormon, converted Jew at age 31, cancer survivor and writer-comedian, as he finds his spiritual path and prepares for his Bar Mitzvah at age 35. The film will cover his Mormon upbringing, eventual conversion to Judaism at age 31 and preparation for his Bar Mitzvah in the Fall of 2017. But before he can become a man in the eyes of Jewish law, he wants to figure out what it means to be the best Jew he can be and even figure out what that means. LATTER DAY JEW chronicles his hilarious and often moving journey, and in the process shows that spiritual and cultural identity is deeper than just what we are born into or what our families believed and taught us. [2020, USA, 85 min, Rated: NR].

This screening is hosted by Steve & Sue Schaffer.
