Louisville Jewish Film Festival: BLEWISH
February 5 - February 27
4:21 minutes, Free
Being Blewish (Black & Jewish) can be frustrating, especially when people frequently assume that someone can’t be Jewish just because they’re Black. Blewish is the story of a boy stuck in the middle. Torn between either concealing or embracing his full identity, he learns how he can help create a world where no other child feels the pressure of having to make that choice again.
Inspired by true events, Blewish, is written & directed by Ezra Edmond.
Blewish had its world premiere at the 2021 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival. It is also an official selection of the 2021 Cucalorus Film Festival.
