    Identity, on film

    For the 2016 Dayton Jewish Film Festival, which runs April 5 through April 19, rather than offering a standard analytical overview, I reached out to Martin Gottlieb, this year’s festival chair, to engage in a critical dialogue. The email exchange set the stage for a freewheeling consideration of how festivals dedicated to specific minority groups assume the curious burden of defining identity. Film, on a certain level, speaks to how we see ourselves, how we reconcile the face that stares back at us from the mirror, from our ancestral lines, and from our roots in a historic context. It is also about being seen, insuring that others have some conception of who we are and where we have come from.
