45 - 'Menashe' Interview

45 - 'Menashe' Interview


Welcome to our latest podcast interview from the Edinburgh International Film Festival. we’ve been so lucky to meet with some amazing acting talent and behind the scenes name and i’m excited to share our conversations about movies, the festival and cinema with you.

Today’s interview is producer and writer, Alex Lipschultz, who talks to me about his work on the Yiddish-language movie, 'Menashe'.

Set In the ultra-Orthodox world of a Hasidic Jewish community in Brooklyn, strict religious traditions frown upon a child growing up in a home without a mother. By ignoring the precedent, widower Menashe risks ostracisation from the community he loves; worse, his son Rieven could even be refused access to school. 

I hope you’ll enjoy your discussion and thanks again to Alex for giving up his time to meet with me .
