Hannah Cohen’s Holy Communion

Set in Dublin in the 1970’s this film explores a rarely glimpsed Ireland, as seen through the eyes of spirited seven year old, Hannah Cohen. Hannah can’t wait to make her Holy Communion – only problem is she’s Jewish! An Irish/Jewish film with an international feel, the beauty of the story lies in its simplicity, humour, and the universal desire to fit in.
