Narrative
World Premiere

Treasures of wisdom often come from humble hearts. Follow the Baal Shem Tov – the famed Jewish mystical rabbi often credited as the founder of Hasidic Judaism on a journey through Eastern Europe during the 17th century, in this fully animated, Claymation film.

In this collection of vignettes from tales by the Baal Shem Tov, we visit poor Jewish families who find hope in their spirituality, not because of their religious acts, but because of their human kindness. This beautifully hand crafted stop-motion feature brings these stories to life and is perfect for the whole family.

Filmmaker present for post screening discussion.
