Dir. Cameron Bossert (US, 2018, 82 min)
A lonely Jew in Utah has been terrified of his Mormon neighbors since childhood, to the point where he refuses to leave his grandmother's house. But when the house goes up for sale, he's forced to confront his biggest fears. After a mental breakdown he's met by an Ancient Jewish Muse and the ghost of Joseph Smith, who both help him understand the history and significance of being Jewish in the Beehive State, but offer conflicting guidance on what to do next. Jewtah is a magic-realist crowd pleaser about being an outsider.
Screening followed by Q+A with director and lead actor Jeremy Rishe.
