Shalom Y’all Film: The 20th Anniversary Celebration

December 3, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$8 – $12

Join us for a special 20th anniversary screening of the critically acclaimed documentary film Shalom Y’all, followed by a panel moderated by MSJE Executive Director Kenneth Hoffman, at the Broad Theater on Sunday, December 3rd.

Shalom Y’all features filmmaker Brian Bain, a third-generation Jew from New Orleans, setting out on a 4,200-mile road trip through the American South in his vintage Cadillac. Driving through Delta flatlands, small towns in Mississippi, suburban subdivisions, Texas ranches, and sprawling sunbelt metropolises, what he uncovers is a vibrant, regional culture and hundreds of years of rich history in a film that is happily flavored with both its Jewish and southern roots.

After the screening, a panel will explore the changes in Southern Jewish culture over the past two decades since the film was made. Panelists include filmmaker Bain; Marcie Cohen Ferris, Interim Director of Center for the Study of the American South, UNC-CH; and Dr. Stuart Rockoff, Executive Director, Mississippi Humanities Council.

This event is in partnership with the New Orleans Film Festival and the Broad Theater, with support from The Fertel Foundation and The Alan and Diane Franco Family Fund.

Cost: $12 general public/$8 MSJE Members (Check your Member emails or email lizzi@msje.com for details on how to get the discount).
