Being Jewish in France

With evocative archival footage and eloquent voices of France’s Jewish community, this panoramic documentary depicts a nation’s history of contradictory treatment of Jews: the first country to grant them citizenship became a Nazi collaborator under the Vichy regime. From the revolutionary cries of “Vive la France” in Yiddish to the haunting legacy of the Dreyfus affair, in which a Jewish military officer was wrongly imprisoned for espionage, Jeuland's film offers a sweeping study of a nation whose thriving, diverse Jewish population is still confronted with anti-Semitism today.
