Red Gold

Filmmaker Phillippe Baron has made one of the most fascinating documentaries. It is a subject never thought about—an eye-opening film tracing the history of blood transfusion and storage, explored through a Jewish lens. The filmmaker chronicles these major advancements, including those made in Germany by German-Jewish doctors exiled to the U.S., as well as contributions made by Canadian Dr. Norman Bethune. While exploring collective fears and fantasies about identity associated with the concept of transferring blood, Red Gold also uncovers the American Red Cross’ racist policies that were denounced by the U.S. Jewish Community.
