The Films of Philip Roth

Eric Goldman, PhD

Philip Roth was one of America’s greatest writers of his generation. Seven of his novels have been adapted into film. Most of them have a strong Jewish and autobiographical character, and many are set in Roth’s birthplace of Newark, New Jersey. His novel The Plot Against America is being made into a television mini-series. The talk will focus on these cinematic adaptations and what we are able to glean from them about the author and American Jewish life over the last century.

Dr. Eric Goldman is adjunct professor of cinema at Yeshiva University and host of “Jewish Cinematheque” on JBSTV.

Presented in partnership with New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
Sponsored by the Eli Kleinman fund for Jewish Education.

IAC Cinematec

IAC Cinematec was founded by Dr. Etti Inbal to introduce the US public to Israeli films, film makers, and daily life in Israel in an effort to create an Israeli-American community of film fans, who can share in the experience and enjoy dialogues about the films. Films are screened with English subtitles and attended by a guest director, actor, or a film professional, who will discuss issues related to the film in English.

Picture Of His Life

World-renowned wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum has one final photographic dream remaining - to photograph a Polar Bear underwater while swimming alongside it. The film follows Amos in the Canadian Arctic, as he prepares for his ultimate challenge. As the journey unfolds, so does an intimate and painful story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.
