Jews Active In Documentaries: The New Generation of Social Justice Filmmakers –



A remarkable number of the people responsible for these films happen to be Jewish. The extent to which their religion plays a role in their interest in filmmaking and social justice varies as much as the subjects and styles of their movies.

Jews creating accessible, meaningful art is neither a new trend nor a random coincidence, according to Caroline Libresco, a senior programmer at the Sundance Film Festival. In our interview, she said, "I don't think it's an accident that progressive Jews want to make a difference. Social change documentaries are an expression of tikkun olam." Libresco has worked in documentary films for 15 years and is herself Jewish. She also said, "There has always been a strong wave of Jewish activist documentarians."
